About the presenters

Dr. Renato (Rainier) M. Liboro is a Community-Based Research Postdoctoral Fellow of the Institute for Mental Health Policy Research at CAMH. Dr. Liboro collaborates with other academic researchers and community partners from across Ontario on research that examines and explores social and inequalities and health disparities that impact the mental health and wellbeing of sexual and gender minorities, racial minorities, immigrants and newcomers, and people living with and at risk of HIV/AIDS, neurocognitive impairments, mental health issues, and other episodic/hidden disabilities.

About Sharing Together

This webinar emerged as a response to #Sharing Together, an EENet initiative that aims to promote the use of evidence to improve the health care experience, quality of care, and overall health and wellbeing of all Ontarians. The two evidence priorities it addresses are effectiveness of services and integrated healthcare.
