Empowering Beyond Barriers

by Lisa Garand, CHB Coordinator AVH

Recently, a collegue send me the link to the following vide http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jIIA_kWdHk

It is very short video raising awareness and sensitivity to the topic of poverty created by Nova Scotians right here in Amherst .

When I viewed it the quote from http://www.unnaturalcauses.org/ came to mind…. poverty is the number one determinant of health.

Here in the valley we have formed our own local poverty coalition which is working on a policy paper about rural versus urban poverty.  What are you doing in your area to draw attention to the effects of poverty on health????
