Workshop – Policy Approches to Reducing Health Inequalities
Val Morrison led a workshop on Policy Approaches to Reducing Health Inequalities at the Canadian Public Health Association's annual conference (CPHA). Click here to consult the PowerPoint presentation.
Based on the content developed for the workshop offered at CPHA, Val Morrison will lead a similar workshop at The Ontario Public Health Congress (TOPHC) in March 2017. During the course of the next year, we will continue to develop short documents based on this work.
The NCCHPP participated in a project with the National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health on intersectionality. This collaboration resulted in two webinars which took place in December 2016. Recordings of these are available via the NCCDH website.
