Social Determinants of Health Across Lifespan: a current accounting and policy implications

York University, 4700 Keele Street

Canada has been a world leader in conceptualizing the social determinants of health, notably health services, education, employment and working conditions, income and income distribution, unemployment, early life, housing, food, social exclusion and the social safety net. Until now, however, there has been no systematic accounting of the state and quality of these social determinants in Canada.

Come hear from distinguished authorities in each of these ten fields as they provide an up-to-date report on the state of the social determinant in Canada. Each presentation will be responded to by a leading health researcher. Both presenter and respondent will comment on the policy implications for each field. The event concludes with a panel presentation of leading policy makers that addresses moving from research to policy and from policy to action.

Poster sessions will run concurrently through the conference. Submissions can be made on line.
