As the new Canada Food Guide rolls out, the Libin Cardiovascular Institute and O’Brien Institute for Public Health are hosting a two-day public conference in Calgary on June 18 and 19, 2018.
‘Canada’s Food Guide: And a healthier Canada through effective nutrition policy’ will aim to ask consumers, health professionals, and policymakers to think about nutrition – and associated health crises – differently. We aim to see these challenges not solely as a problem with the individual – the belief that diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, etc., are all shortcomings of the person – but with the socio-economic systems we’ve built. The intent is also to share ideas, foster collaboration, and build networks that will identify knowledge, and design longitudinal strategies with which to address these crises from a societal and policy point of view.
Senator Nancy Greene Raine will provide the keynote address, discussing marketing to children and identifying what civil society can do to help support healthy public policy in Parliament.
