Patient Engagement Through an EDI Lens

Patient Engagement Through an EDI Lens

What We Do

Our researchers will engage with Patient Partners at the individual and community levels to co-design equitable, scalable and effective care pathways for improving health and wellness. Our EDI Champions, Drs. Joyce Dogba and Holly Witteman, in collaboration with Dr. Robin Mason from the Women’s Xchange at Women’s College Hospital, will ensure sex and gender based analysis (SGBA+) is incorporated into all projects to highlight potential differences among people with diverse identity characteristics.

Get Involved

You will participate in discussions approximately once a month pertaining to research projects and strategic goals of the Network. You can also get involved in a research team! Researchers need your feedback to make sure research projects are relevant for people living with diabetes.
