Please join us for the launch of the report, Health Status and Health Needs of Older Immigrant Women.

Based on a literature review and community-based research, this preliminary study examines the impact of social policy on the health status of older immigrant women in Toronto and the health and social service seeking patterns of older immigrant women. Health Status and Health Needs of Older Immigrant Women explores the role of Community Health Centres in addressing the health and social service needs of these women with a view to further research and application to service interventions.
