NCCDH’s Public Health Speaks: Equity and the built environment
The National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health (NCCDH) brought together three leaders in public health practice and research, including MUSE’s Dr. Nazeem Muhajarine, to discuss their experiences bringing an equity lens to work in the built environment and identify opportunities for public health to promote equity through the built environment, who to partner with, and how to ensure public health has a seat at the planning table.
This resource summarizes that conversation, facilitated by Dr. Teri Emrich, knowledge translation specialist at the NCCDH.
Participants: Claire Gram, population health policy and projects lead, Vancouver Coastal Health; Dr. Nazeem Muhajarine, professor, Community Health and Epidemiology, College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan, and director, Saskatchewan Population Health Evaluation Research Unit (SPHERU); Dr. Lisa Richards, medical officer of health, Winnipeg Regional Health Authority
