FBC and Student Researchers Follow Dental Care During the Pandemic

January 30, 2021

Addressing and ensuring the total health of Black Canadians is a central priority in the mission of the Federation of Black Canadians. In the wake of COVID-19, numerous studies have shown that Black Canadians are being significantly impacted by the virus. This is not only physical but socially and financially. 

COVID-19 has drastically impacted all areas of life, and with the support of our members, we hope to bring awareness to these effects on our communities. In this regard, the FBC supported students from the University of Toronto’s School of Dentistry, Rouzbeh Ostadsharif Memar, and Lis Grinfeld to raise awareness about the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on access to dental care for Black Canadians and propose practical solutions for facilitating equity in access to oral care. Over the course of several months, the research team collected data through various surveys distributed to FBC members and peer-reviewed articles.
