Dr Gilliland Addresses OPPI on Planning and Health

Friday, October 31, 2014

Dr Jason Gilliland, Director of the HEALab, was a featured speaker last night at the Ontario Professional Planners Institute Southwest District Event in London on the theme “Exploring the Relationship Between Planning and Public Health”. Dr Gilliland was invited to speak about all the relevant planning and health research being conducted in the HEALab. Also speaking at the event was Bernadette McCall, Public Health Nurse/Healthy Communities Coordinator of the Middlesex-London Health Unit, who gave the public health perspective. Given all the recent and ongoing collaborations between the HEALab and the MLHU, the unofficial theme of the night turned out to be “creating healthy communities through cross-sector collaboration”!
