This blog is about the spatial and social determinants of health. As a recently minted Canada Research Chair at the University of New Brunswick, I found that I have needed a way to get my ideas outside of the academic arena. This blog may help me do that.

Not everything I write about is related to health research, and not all health research is what it seems. I take a very broad view on health and include the broad range of social, environmental, and spatial determinants in my perspective. I view my research from a positive health perspective, where I try not to focus only on disease and illness, but also on the positive factors that promote health living and a healthy being.
