Acting on Social Determinants of Health Twitter Chat

September 24, 2013 

3:00-4:00 p.m. EDT

Join us for #HealthPromoChat (, hosted by Health Promotion Ontario (HPO) conference coordinator Tanya Beattie.

In anticipation of the Septembera 26th HPO conference, Think Big and Let’s Get Going: Applying SDOH, we’ll be talking about a SDOH continuum of activities that move upstream. Share your current work and challenges in education and awareness, programs, initiatives, resources, policies and inter-sectoral action. Let’s keep the conversation, and action, going!

Questions to explore:

  • How are you or your organization acting on the social determinants of health?
  • What enables moving from awareness to advocacy?
  • What does ‘Moving or Working Upstream’ mean to you? Do you have stories of making that move upstream in your work?
  • How do we genuinely connect with other sectors who are active in working on determinants, such as housing, poverty, women’s health, recreation, municipal planning and more?
