A Poverty-Free Alberta
Many factors influence our health, but our wealth (or lack thereof) acts as one of the biggest social determinants of health. Think how money affects your health choices--access to healthcare services, participation in recreation and wellness activities to get/stay fit, food insecurity and quality of food, even things like being able to treat ourselves for mental wellness or taking time off to enjoy your friends and family or leisure activities. For Apple magazine's summer issue, I chatted with some prominent Albertans to get their takes on what a poverty-free Alberta could look like.
