Join us for this special webinar presented by the Canadian Alliance for Sustainable Health Care, in which Dr. Jeffrey Turnbull will describe how tackling growing inequality—health inequality, social inequality and income inequality—must become our top wellness priority.
Dr. Turnbull has a unique perspective on the health care system in Canada. From inside the system, as Chief of Staff at the Ottawa Hospital, he sees on a daily basis how the hospital struggles to serve acute care patients—as well as more and more patients with chronic conditions, who have nowhere else to go.
Dr. Turnbull also gets a first-hand view at the devastating impact of poverty on health. In 2001, he helped found the Ottawa Inner City Health Project, which set out to improve the health and welfare of Ottawa's homeless population. Since the inception of the project, he has served as Medical Director and conducts regular rounds to care for some of the most vulnerable people in the community.
Don’t miss this chance to learn about this unique program, which Dr. Turnbull describes as one of the most fulfilling aspects of his career.
