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.
The NCCDH was very pleased to be invited to participate in the Prenatal Environmental Health Education (PEHE) forum on November 20-21, 2014 in Ottawa, ON. The forum was a two day event that brought together researchers, practitioners, and organizations interested in the impact of exposure to environmental health contaminants on pregnant women and their babies.
