Let's Talk Health is our next installment in the Great Ideas. Great City. Speaker Series. Join us at City Hall on Wednesday April 26 for a lively discussion about the built environment and how it can impact our health.
Let's Talk Health will be a conversation on the relationship between the built environment, other social determinants of health, and their influences on us. How do we engage planners, public health professionals, and other city-builders together with citizens to address our health? If cities are complex and adaptive systems, how can we position Edmonton to promote and address health equity?
