Description:

Dr. Eva Purkey, Director of the Queen’s Department of Family Medicine’s Global Health Program, invites you to Code Red: Health Wealth and Social Determinants on Monday, February 12, 2018, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at the Queen’s Biosciences Complex, Room 1102, 116 Barrie St. No registration is required.

Steve Buist, investigations editor at The Hamilton Spectator and creator of the highly acclaimed and national award-winning Code Red series on health outcomes, will share his groundbreaking analysis of how the social determinants of health have been directly measured in Hamilton, Ontario.  The shocking results – from staggering differences in birth weights to life expectancy and cancer mortality rates – expose inequities pervasive in neighbourhoods across Canada.
