The NCCHPP's François Gagnon will lead this half-day workshop during the Sunday preconference sessions at the CPHA's annual conference in Ottawa. 

How is it that certain public policy options are considered acceptable while others are not? Answering this question is of great strategic importance in promoting healthy public policies. Governmental rationalities structure the areas of public policy and are a key element of the answer.

The Canadian Public Health Association's (CPHA's) annual conference will be held in Ottawa from June 9-12, 2013. The conference program is online, with the description of this workshop on page 11. (PDF 3 MB, on the CPHA website.)

This workshop will include simultaneous translation.
