How Are We REALLY Doing? Looking at the CIW 2014 Ontario Report from a Public and Community Health Perspective

What: Webinar
When: November 10, 2014
Time: 12:00 pm

The first Ontario Canadian Index of Wellbeing report titled “How Are Ontarians Really Doing?” contrasts progress in education, community vitality, and health with decline or stagnation in the domains of democratic engagement, environment, leisure and culture, time use, and living standards. Collective action is needed to address these areas of concern. This webinar will highlight the key findings of the Report using a social determinants of health lens, and explore the critical role of public and community health in improving the wellbeing of Ontarians across the province.
