In September 2018, The National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health (NCCDH) brought together three leaders in public health practice and research to share their experiences and reflections on public health practice and action to advance health equity through the built environment. This resource summarizes that conversation, facilitated by Dr. Teri Emrich, knowledge translation specialist at the NCCDH.
Our resource library contains more than 150 resources. The library is evolving, as we continue to add resources that are relevant, geared to practice, and either recently published or foundational to current health equity thinking in public health.
