Social Prescribing and Orchestras

Social prescribing is a way of referring people from clinical care to a range of local, non-clinical services.  In this lunch & learn, we discuss what social prescribing is, why it is important, and how orchestras might engage with its practitioners. Learn about the history of social prescribing, hear how it’s being scaled up,  and meet leaders in this emerging field.

Hosted by Aaron Mcfarlane, Toronto Symphony Orchestra with special guests Sonia Hsiung, Social Prescribing Pilot Lead, Alliance for Healthier Communities; Janis Dahl, Health Promoter, Centretown Community Health Centre; Surkhab Peerzada, Regional Manager for Chronic Disease, South Riverdale Community Health Centre.
