Sunday Meeting: Anne George - Injury inequality: The social determinants of health

Anne George is Associate Professor Emerita Pediatrics at the University of British Columbia. Her research focuses on public and population health, and on examining social determinants of health, including:

  • The health and well-being of populations, including immigrant and refugees, and aboriginal peoples
  • Alcohol and alcohol-related risks, including alcohol exposure during pregnancy
  • Improved health research practice, particularly with respect to ethical considerations

Together with fellow UBC Professor Mariana Brussoni, she has studied injury rates in BC's indigenous communities, and written about that research in The Conversation.

All are welcome to attend. Join us at 10 am for BYO coffee, tea, and socializing. At 10:30 am we start our presentation and discuss topics of interest to our members.

The BC Humanist Association was formed in 1984 and we have a regular attendance of over 30 people at our Sunday meetings.
