Tackling Health Inequities: Lessons Learned from A Leading Health Region
Cory Neudorf, Chief Medical Health Officer for Saskatoon Health Region, will be making a special lecture and leading a discussion on addressing health inequities at a local community level.
Saskatoon has led the way in Canada in sophisticated research that identifies the nature and foundations of systemic health inequities between neighbourhoods in the city; developing comprehensive multi-pronged strategies to tackle those inequities; and driving these strategies into action through focussed programs engaging with local communities and building effective cross-sectoral collaborations.
Dr Neudorf is a widely recognized international expert on health inequalities, health indicators, monitoring and reporting, and population health research; has been Chair of the Canadian Public Health Association; and is a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Saskatchewan medical college. He will discuss the key directions Saskatoon has taken; some early successes in addressing inequities and health disadvantaged populations; lessons learned; and implications for our efforts to address health equity in Toronto and Ontario.
