About this panel discussion
Dr. Stacie CC Graham, an expert on racial and intersectional equity, will chair this panel of experts who will explore how Covid-19 has exposed health inequalities and highlighted existing barriers to people of color accessing yoga. Topics will include a case study of Covid-19’s unequal impact in Toronto with Dr Kate Mulligan, and the impact on the black community documented by Rhonda Smith from the California Black Health Network. We’ll also learn the difference between health inequalities, health disparities and health inequities from Priya Verma, a Physician Assistant working with Covid patients and a lead for the International Association of Yoga Therapists on diversity, equity and inclusion. The panel will leave ample time for questions from the audience to fully round out this important topic.
