Back in early February, four NCCs came together to host an NCC Knowledge Exchange Forum Towards TB Elimination in Northern and Indigenous Communities.
On November 15, 2017, the International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE) opened a Secretariat office on Montreal, Quebec, further emphasizing Canada’s significance as a player on the global health promotion stage.
The NCCDH recently participated in the first full gathering of the Multisectoral Urban Systems for Health and Equity in Canadian Cities (MUSE) project, a Canada-wide initiative to analyze how local municipalities, public health and community organizations work together to design our cities to promote fair distribution of health outcomes.
I (Raymond) have been a Public Health Inspector (PHI) for over 15 years and currently fulfill the role of Environmental Health Specialist with Toronto Public Health (TPH) within the Healthy Environments directorate.
In over 20 years of working in public health, I have seen how Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) can be effective advocates for individual clients, but knowing when to intervene in an individual case in the name of public health can be a challenge.
