Sharing Your Passion for Health Equity: Building our Collective Understanding
Tuesday, April 9, 2013 9 am to 3 pm
CAST Building, Holland College, Charlottetown, PEI
The National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health (NCCDH) has teamed up with the Atlantic Summer Institute on Healthy and Safe Communities (ASI) and the NB and PEI Branch of the Canadian Public Health Association to offer people in Prince Edward Island an opportunity to explore health equity ideas and opportunities.
The interactive workshop is open to people in the broad public health sector: practitioners, community health leaders, policy developers and researchers…as well as people involved in education, safety, and social and economic development. Participants will examine models of good practice and public health leadership and share their experiences, all towards building a stronger community of practice for health equity on PEI.
Join us to learn more about:
• the social determinants of health and their links to health equity
• the role of public health in addressing health equity
• people and projects that are focused on creating greater health equity in PEI
• equity work in other provinces
Morning snacks and lunch are provided.
