U of T Scarborough launches Black Health Equity Lab

The University of Toronto Scarborough has launched the Black Health Equity Lab (BHEL), a lab that will focus on health inequities faced by Toronto’s Black community members. The lab will complete not only research, but will design solutions for health inequities and engage in a partnership with the TAIBU Community Health Centre. U of T Scarborough assistant professor and BHEL director Notisha Massaquoi stated that the lab will be a place for students and community members to collaborate on issues related to how Black people experience the health-care system. The lab also will work with Indigenous researchers and communities to apply knowledge learned at the lab to health inequities experienced by Indigenous individuals.
