A family doctor and a community activist tackle the intersections between public health and necessary activism.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made the gross inequalities even more apparent and many of us have become advocates by default, feeling we really have no other choice. Nili and Ariel interview women who are working a double or triple shift as professionals, parents and activists, shining a light on the issues that keep us up at night. From the streets, to the waiting room, to the classroom, advocacy is often the only prescription for change.
"As long as we focus on individual struggles to get through COVID-19, we are each going to burn out. We are more powerful to change our trajectory if we think about health care, education, and social services as an integrated system that needs more support, collectively, collaboratively, across provincial boundaries"
- Dr. Nili Kaplan-Myrth -
