In this interactive learning session, Dr. Mireille Norris will present information that will assist healthcare providers to understand the experience of Black older adults within the healthcare system. Additionally, she will share practical tips and evidence-based tools that will enhance providers’ ability to deliver culturally safe care to their Black clients and patients.

She is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Toronto and Education Director for the Sunnybrook Hospitalist Training program which she created and implemented at Sunnybrook in 2005.
