Learning empathy to resolve core health and social needs

This year, the offices of Social Accountability and Francophone Affairs at the Faculty of Medicine partnered with the Alliance to End Homelessness Ottawa (ATEHO) to facilitate, for the first time, an experiential learning activity called The Empathy Project. This activity was co-designed by ATEHO and people with lived experience of homelessness.

For two weeks, students experienced a simulated “day-in-the-life” of an individual seeking to meet core health and social needs such as housing, employment, legal aid, food and income support. The volunteers included ATEHO team members, people with lived experience, individuals from the wider Ottawa community and members of the Faculty of Medicine.
