Program Theme Announcement: Innovation for a Healthier Atlantic Canada
Over the past fifty years, the Atlantic Canadian region has experienced large changes in its population, demographics, economics, and health systems. Currently the region is growing more culturally diverse while youth outmigration is on the rise and an increasing percentage of the population are aging adults. These changes are impacting healthcare spending, community health planning as well as economic strategies. At ACPA 2019, we will discuss the future health of Atlantic Canada in an interactive, innovative format. Discussions will be focused on economic health, community health, and healthcare to share perspectives, promising practices, and explore innovative ideas and solutions for a Healthier Atlantic Canada.
