10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
A key element of a population health approach is the recognition that improving health outcomes is a shared responsibility within and across different sectors (e.g., government, education, business, social services, economic development, and health). Health in All Policies is a recommended strategy for coordinating collaborative efforts to create healthy communities to meet the social, physical, economic and spiritual needs of the population.
The purpose of this webinar is to provide a historical, conceptual and operational overview of Health in All Policies. Guest presenter, Karen Loney, Health Educator with the Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit and Coordinator of the Chatham-Kent Community Leaders’ Cabinet will share how one municipality is working to operationalize a Health in All Policies approach.
By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Define Health in All Policies and understand how this approach can be applied
- Become aware of current resources to help operationalize this approach
- Reflect on how the information provided can be applied to their own area of work
Speakers: Kim Bergeron and Karen Loney
