The Rainbow Health Ontario (RHO) Conference comes to Sudbury

Award-winning TV and radio personality Candy Palmater opened the fifth Rainbow Health Ontario Conference at the Radisson Hotel in Greater Sudbury on March 22, 2018.


The biennial Rainbow Health Ontario (RHO) Conference — the largest of its kind in all of Canada, is taking place in Sudbury for the first time this year.
Bringing together social workers, health care workers, researchers and community members over the course of three days, more than 50 sessions deal with the themes of clinical practice, education, research, policy and systems change, as well as ethics and law.
Previously held in Ottawa, London and Toronto, this year’s conference at the RadissonHotel focuses on partnerships within health and social services that acknowledge the diversity found within Ontario’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and Two-Spirit (LGBTQ2S) communities.
This year, lawyer-turned-feminist-comic Candy Palmater delivered the opening address. You might recognize Palmater from her award-winning APTN series, The Candy Show, or from The Candy Palmater Show on CBC radio. She is also set to release a book in 2018.
