December 2015.  Description.
The NCCHPP participated in the Journées annuelles de santé publique (JASP - Québec's Annual Public Health Days), held in Montréal on December 8 and 9, 2015.

On Tuesday December 9, Olivier Bellefleur presented “Paternalism(s), cognitive biases and healthy public policy” during a one-day workshop entitled: “Should we protect people from themselves” (Faut-il protéger les gens contre eux-mêmes ?). The goal for this day-long workshop was to strengthen participants' capacities in proposing, critiquing and justifying diverse interventions in public health, notably through the use of concepts drawn from behavioural economics.
