Department of Family and Community Medicine and St. Michael’s Academic Family Health Team

Advocacy and social policy

The St. Michael’s Academic Family Health Team's Advocacy Committee has developed an advocacy toolkit and departmental framework to support advocacy by members of the department.

The SMHAFHT has a department-wide advocacy campaign, initiated in 2019, called "Healing our roots: A health equity approach to reconciliation"

Many staff and physicians are already working to shape policy on social determinants of health through community-based advocacy and participation in government consultations at the municipal, provincial and federal levels.
