The GHEM Health Equity Committee has been working tirelessly over the last two months, responding to the immediate and complex situation that the COVID-19 pandemic presents for Toronto’s disadvantaged and vulnerable populations.

One exciting initiative is PHONE-CONNECT. In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, emergency physicians at UHN launched PHONE-CONNECT, a program spearheaded by Dr. Andrea Somers, to distribute cellphones to vulnerable patients who are under investigation of COVID-19 infection but do not have access to a telephone.
