Connie Clement, our NCCDH Scientific Director, was recently profiled among Canadian public health leaders in an interview published in the Canadian Journal of Public Health. The interview is part of a series intended to capture the personal perspectives of Canadian public health leaders.
NCCDH and NCCEH recently attended “Innovation Beyond Inspection”, the 2016 annual education conference of the Canadian Institute for Public Health Inspectors in Edmonton, AB to explore integrating health equity principles into environmental public health practice.
On behalf of the NCCDH, I extend a warm welcome to the new Scientific Director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s Institute of Population and Public Health (IPPH), Steven Hoffman. Our organization looks forward to working with Steven and his new team to advance population and public health knowledge across Canada.
NCCDH recently attended Pathways to health equity: Levelling the playing field in Winnipeg, an event designed to engage researchers, trainees, practitioners, and decision makers with each other to explore how to translate research knowledge into practical actions to address health equity.
NCCDH was fortunate to be invited to Sparking Population Health Solutions, an international summit held in Ottawa that brought together researchers, influencers, and decision makers to discuss shifting the emphasis from studying the problem to creating solutions for population health.
