Health Equity Week is an annual week-long event run by the Canisius College Physician Assistant Studies Program that focuses on raising awareness of the health disparities that exist across racial, ethnic, cultural and social groups. Health Equity Week uses a variety of interactive and innovative events to inform and inspire the actions needed to eradicate such health inequities.

Each day during the week of October 3  – 7, students in the Canisius Physician Assistant Studies Program will be organizing and participating in varying service events throughout the community. We welcome you to join us in these events, donate to associated causes, or support us along our journey. The Health Equity Week schedule is listed in the link below:
