Improving the Health of Ontario's Women: Where do We Stand? Lessons from the POWER Study
How are patterns of health and illness different for women and men in Ontario? How much does your health depend on how much money you make, how much school you completed or where you live? What are the leading causes of disease, disability and death in the province? What can we do to improve the health of all Ontarians and to narrow the health gap between rich and poor?
Come and hear answers to these questions and more from the results of the POWER Study: the Project for an Ontario Women's Health Evidence-based Report Card. Come and discuss what these findings mean for your community. Share your ideas about how to improve access to and quality of health care services for everyone.
