2020 TAIWANfest Hope Talk - Dr Meng-Chuan Lai

A PSYCHIATRIST’S VIEW ON WORLD’S RESPONSES TO COVID-19

DR. MENG-CHUAN LAI, PROFESSOR OF PSYCHIATRY

 

With roots in Taiwan, the UK, and Canada, Dr. Meng-Chuan Lai provides us with his world view of where Canada lies in terms of diversity, and how we as a collective can do better. Listen in as Dr. Lai explains to us from a psychiatry perspective, what causes racism, and how we can combat stereotypes.  By being more mindful and aware of our surroundings, we can all learn to think globally, and act locally.

A newcomer to Canada with a worldwide perspective, Dr. Meng-Chuan Lai is a clinician scientist at the University of Toronto and Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and The Hospital for Sick Children. His observations of the world, layered with insights from his psychiatry background, provides an introspective take on why we act the way we do among others, something that has been the root of many powerful conversations taking place around the world.
