Code Red Rx – Prescription for Healthy Neighbourhoods Speaker Series

Dr. Jim Dunn
Associate Professor, McMaster University
Chair in Research on Urban Neighbourhoods, Community Health & Housing (CRUNCH)

The Spectator’s Code Red Series and the Hamilton Community Foundation’s Vital Signs Report both show our City’s grim reality of poverty by postal code.  If wealth – and health – are defined by where we live, are neighbourhood-based approaches the answer?  McMaster researcher Dr. Jim Dunn shows us where they’ve been used, their pros and cons… and how they could work in Hamilton.

COME TO LISTEN …. TO QUESTION …. AND TO ACT!  ALL WELOME!  FREE EVENT!
