About the Levine Family Lectureship
With a focus on new and emerging research or best medical practice in peri and post-natal care through the WCH Family Practice Health Centre, the Women’s Mental Health Program or other women’s mental health issues, the Levine Family Lectureship amplifies women’s mental health as a part of healthcare for all women, more broadly among professionals, educators and community, to better equip people to understand the psychosocial determinants of health and how that impacts the treatment and presentation of women’s mental health on a broad scale.
