Our CPHA-inspired series continues this week with "Exploring Contributions of Individual and Neighbourhood Characteristics to Health and Lifestyles in Hamilton, Ontario," by Susan Keller-Olaman of the McMaster Institute of Environment and Health. In her introduction she writes "Determinants of health have largely been studied at the national and international level. By examining relationships in these local populations, the present project extends our understanding of the determinants of health."
