How the proximity to community resources impacts health 

This webinar will discuss the relationship between population health and proximity to resources (parks, supermarkets, community centres, etc.) that impact our daily life. Drawing on solid scientific knowledge, speakers will explain the correlation between the physical and mental health status of urban populations and housing conditions, food environment, community life and sustainable mobility.

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss potential action and research areas during the interactive questions and answers session.
