A Healthy Society Book Launch



The Amazing People at Another Story Bookshop (Another Story),  which is at 315 Roncesvalles, will be hosting a book launch on Monday May 28th for Dr. Ryan Meili’s new book, “A Healthy Society: How A Focus On Health Can Revive Canadian Democracy.” The event will also feature Social Determinants of Health author Dr. Dennis Raphael.  The event begins at 7PM, make sure to come out and support a great local business and hear a engaging talk on health.


Further about the event:

“Ryan is a family doctor at the West Side Community Clinic in Saskatoon, as well as the head of the Division of Social Accountability at the College of Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan. With an introduction by Dennis Raphael, Ryan will talk about how the Canadian health care system too often focuses on the treatment of immediate causes and ignores the more fundamental conditions that lead to poor health, including income, education, employment, housing, and social supports. A Healthy Society discusses these health determinants and examinese those democratic reforms which could help Canadians to create a truly healthy society. Ryan’s book is a plan for action based in the lived experiences of both practitioners and patients. A Healthy Society breaks important ground in the renewal of politics toward the goal of better lives for all Canadians.
