Health

Below is  some of the work that students in the health group did throughout the semester, including neighborhood profiles and field notes.  Each assignment was meant to build a picture of the barriers and opportunities immigrants may face when seeking health services in Scaroborough.    

 

NEIGHBORHOOD PROFILES:

Students began by researching and writing up neighborhood profiles.  In additional to general information, their goal was to understand the landscape of health services for immigrants in the Kingston Galloway Orton Park community of Scarborough.
