“Health Equity means Opportunity and Change.”
“The voices, lived experiences, and cultural authority of our people are integral to the co-design, co-ownership and co-implementation of our Health Equity Strategy.”
“If we be too sensitive, we won’t fix anything.”
“You have the full commitment from the Board and Metro North Leadership to co-design with Elders, community, and partners to make our hospital and health services accessible, free from racism and discrimination, culturally safe and responsive.”
“Still keep fighting.”
“You have to understand the patient journey. You have to understand health starts at home.”
