The 3rd Annual Canadian Children, Youth and Communities (CCYC) In | Equity Conference; October 20-21, 2023
The Canadian Children, Youth and Communities (CCYC) In | Equity Conference is an interdisciplinary conference designed to bring together pediatric health and allied health care professionals to address health care inequities from birth to adolescence using a family-centred approach. This conference explores health equity topics specific to marginalized communities in the Canadian health care system and offers approaches that can be implemented to address barriers in accessing healthcare for under serviced, high-risk and economically disadvantaged children and youth. Our goal is to present novel solutions to addressing health inequities among children, youth and communities. The Conference Program Committee invites abstract submissions for 60-minute interactive workshops (which participants can join live virtually or watch a recording of later on) and for poster presentations (loaded in a virtual poster hall (with optional video) for participants to view at any time, plus assigned poster viewing times where you can choose to be present to answer text or video chats). Abstracts discussing solutions and interventions to addressing the conference themes are highly encouraged – we also strongly encourage submissions that include people with lived experience as co-presenters. We encourage submissions from pediatric health and allied health professionals in academic and community settings nationwide, including collaborations with community members (i.e., schools, community agencies, public health units etc...). We also invite submissions from community organizations, health care providers/organizations and from students who are doing new and innovative work in this area.
