30@8:30: Dialogue #4 featuring Uppala Chandrasekera

May 6, 2020 @ 8:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Location: @thecribcommunity on Instagram Live

Featuring: Uppala Chandrasekera, Director of Public Policy at the Canadian Mental Health Association Ontario

Each week, host Dr. Tanya L. Sharpe — Associate Professor at the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work and Founder and Director of The CRIB — engages leading scholars, community leaders, and social work professionals in a 30-minute dialogue that explores how the current global pandemic is affecting vulnerable populations— and how we can ensure that we are responding to their needs.

Topics will include the relationship between COVID-19 and structural violence, traumatic stress and grief, gun violence, the impact on the incarcerated, and the erasure of our healthcare system.

This week, Dr. Sharpe and Uppala Chandrasekera will discuss the fractured healthcare system.

Six dialogues will take place on Instagram Live. The seventh and final episode, on May 27th, will bring all featured guest speakers together via Zoom for an interactive Q&A.
