Poverty by Postal Code: Will Neighbourhood Solutions Work in Hamilton?
January 25th, Doors open at 6:30 pm, Lecture at 7 pm
Hamilton Spectator Auditorium, 44 Frid Street, Hamilton
Code Red Rx – Prescription for Healthy Neighbourhoods Speaker Series
Dr. Jim Dunn
Associate Professor, McMaster University
Chair in Research on Urban Neighbourhoods, Community Health & Housing (CRUNCH)
The Spectator’s Code Red Series and the Hamilton Community Foundation’s Vital Signs Report both show our City’s grim reality of poverty by postal code. If wealth – and health – are defined by where we live, are neighbourhood-based approaches the answer? McMaster researcher Dr. Jim Dunn shows us where they’ve been used, their pros and cons… and how they could work in Hamilton.
