Black Health Leaders Awards Ceremony – Dalla Lana School of Public Health

February 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join the Dalla Lana School of Public Health for their second annual Black Health Leaders Awards Ceremony, in honour of outstanding Black leaders in public health and health systems in the Greater Toronto Area.

The intention of the Black Health Leaders Awards Ceremony is to amplify and celebrate exceptional leadership and impact, while inspiring future leaders. In addition to going above and beyond in their roles, this year’s recipients of the Outstanding Black Leadership in Public Health and Health Systems Awards have also demonstrated meaningful support of those around them including future generations of health leaders. As we gather to spotlight Black achievements and the contributions of these leaders, we also honour the legacy of Black communities and celebrate their futures.

When: Thursday, February 29th, 2024 from 6:00pm – 8:30pm ET

Where: The Faculty Club, 41 Willcocks Street, Toronto, ON, M5S 3G3
