About this item

Physician Ryan Meili, an elected official in Saskatoon Meewasin, is affiliated with Upstream, a movement to create a healthy society. In this accessible call to action for general readers and others, he presents his vision for a world that prevents disease and poor health by improving social supports such as education, employment, and housing. He explains the social determinants of health, noting that the countries with the healthiest populations have the least income inequality, and presents real-life examples of the failures of the system from his experiences as a doctor in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and Mozambique. This second edition contains new material on poverty, food security, climate change, basic income, and housing policies. He also offers new discussion of the role of health professionals as advocates. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
