Summary

Beyond Barriers: Photographs from the Frontlines of Health is an eye-opening exhibit of stories and images that form a narrative map of the people, organizations and communities that make up the frontlines of health in Canada.

Thursday, June 10, 2010 - 1:25pm

Language, culture and long working days make it difficult for many immigrant women to access mainstream healthcare.  A health clinic on wheels with culturally diverse staff members delivers care right to their workplaces in downtown Toronto. 

The Immigrant Women’s Health Centre – overcoming invisible barriers.  Finding new ways to provide access to vulnerable populations is just one of many stories celebrated in Beyond Barriers: Photographs from the frontlines of health, on display at the Canadian Public Health Association’s Centenary conference.
