St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, 27 Front Street East, Toronto, 2 blocks east of Union Station

We all know the illness-prevention wisdom of an apple a day. But what proverbial apple will achieve a healthy society? What would you prescribe to promote health for all--to do more than treat illness after it has happened? Join us as we envision a system that promotes health and see how effective prevention can be.

Moderated by Amanuel Melles, Director, Organizational Capacity Building United Way of Greater Toronto with speakers Erica Di Ruggiero, Associate Director, Canadian Institutes of Health Research, Institute of Population and Public Health; Wayne Roberts, Coordinator, Toronto Food Policy Council, Toronto Public Health; Norman Rowan, Director, Pathways to Education, Regent Park Community Health Centre
