Systemic barriers to accessing social and community care

Monday, November 6th
1:30 – 2:20 p.m.

This panel will explore research and lived experiences of the barriers experienced by caregivers from underserved communities such as BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ and how our social and healthcare supports and policies need to shift. What can we learn from the data and from lived experience as we design a national caregiving strategy?
