Closing the Gap: Better Health for All, with Dr. Trevor Hancock and Dr. Courtney Howard    Sat Apr 8, 2017, Ottawa, ON

Closing the Gap: Better Health for All brings together scholars and practitioners who are actively implementing solutions to health equity issues. This year, our feature guest is Professor Emeritus Richard G. Wilkinson, co-author of The Spirit Level: Why Equality is Better for Everyone. Taking place at the Shaw Centre in downtown Ottawa, our event is an ideal opportunity to network across organizational lines and with the Canadian community of SDoH advocates.

You may be particularly interested in Professor Trevor Hancock and Dr. Courtney Howard. Professor Hancock will be discussing a new project of his called One Planet Communities, and Dr. Howard will speak about coal power and human/environmental health.

Our complete list of speakers will be announced over March at
