HEALTHY HAMILTON NEIGHBOURHOODS


Are you interested in learning more about Hamilton’s neighbourhoods? Have you ever wondered what makes a neighbourhood healthy? 

This Friday, November 8th, McMaster’s very own Dr. Jim Dunn, CIHR-PHAC Chair in Applied Public Health and the director of CRUNCH, will present “Urban Health Rx: A Prescription for Healthy Neighbourhoods”. In this presentation, Dr. Dunn will talk about the merits of place-based policy for healthier neighbourhoods, and what else needs to be done to reduce disparities between neighbourhoods and make them healthier for everyone.

The presentation will take place at 5 pm this Friday at the Brain (199 James St North). It’s going to be a really interesting discussion, so drop by, learn about healthy neighbourhoods, and then go to Art Crawl afterwards!
