Using a Lifecourse Approach to Improving Well-Being @ Online
May 2 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The Life-Course Perspective offers a new way of looking at health, not as disconnected stages unrelated to each other, but as an integrated continuum. Presenting data using a Lifecourse approach identifies times at which targeted interventions may be especially effective. Health and social care organizations can then use this information to offer services that provide safety nets and springboards for individuals during key life periods to alter life course trajectories in a positive way. This webinar will examine multiple Niagara specific data sources to examine the key reasons why individuals interact with health services.

This is a presentation of policy brief #31 by the Niagara Community Observatory at Brock University, entitled, “The Future of Niagara’s Health: Using a Life-Course Approach to Improve Well-being”.

Presenters:

  • Dr. Sinéad McElhone, Manager of Surveillance and Evaluation, NIagara Region Public Health & Adjunct Faculty, Brock University
  • Diane Vanecko, Director of Organizational and Foundational Standards at Niagara Region Public Health

This webinar is hosted by Niagara Connects.
