The O’Brien Institute for Public Health presents its 2023 Members Forum – A healthier future for all: Mobilizing health equity research into action. This event will bring researchers, students and community organizations together to forge a collaborative path toward transformative health equity solutions.

This forum serves as the official launch of the O’Brien Institute Health Equity HUB which will act as a platform for researchers across the University of Calgary to collaborate with government and community agencies. The alliance will mobilize health equity research into innovative changes to policy and practice, addressing persistent and challenging structural problems that can only be solved through a focus on health equity.
