Society is waking up to the insidious damage caused by racism, colonialism, and other oppressions. PHC’s annual Heath Ethics Conference will confront the systemic bias in health care that has inflicted lasting harms to the health of equity-owed populations.

In this two-day ethics education event, rising voices and important truths will illuminate the shortcomings of a healthcare system that has attended most to those with privilege – whether due to intent, convenience, oversight or disinterest. This learning will challenge our systems of research, health care access, innovation processes, prioritization of funding and even our health care ethics lens.​

With the humility required to examine the social failures of healthcare, this conference will look for opportunities to build cultural safety and realign the work of the health care system to answer society’s call to justice.​​​
