The DLSPH Outreach and Access Program was developed to raise awareness of non-clinical career paths in health care and stimulate the creation of a diverse pool of young leaders from underrepresented communities, preparing them for progressively influential roles within public health and the broader health care system. In 2019, the pilot program was launched at Marc Garneau Collegiate Institute in the Thorncliffe Park neighborhood. The following year, the program expanded to Runnymede Collegiate Institute, located near Jane and Dundas West, where it continues to help students build relationships, develop leadership skills, and expose them to various aspects of public health and health systems. The DLSPH Outreach and Access Program has since expanded to serve multiple parts of GTA including Scarborough and Lawrence Heights and will continue increasing our impact through our service to youth across the city.
