Cityscapes on Nov. 29: The Walkable Road to Healthier Cities

At this #Cityscapes installment, I will be moderating a discussion between two nationally-renowned experts in the field of public health to discuss how the built environment and our approaches to transportation and land-use planning can contribute to positive public health outcomes.

Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada's Chief Public Health Officer will kick off the conversation by speaking to her recently-released seminal report entitled "Designing Healthy Living". Dr. Doug Manuel, Professor and Senior Scientist at the Ottawa Hospital and the University of Ottawa, will draw on his extensive academic and applied research that has made a major contribution to public health policy in Ontario. This will be a relaxed, conversational panel discussion with an opportunity for audience questions.
