Welcome to the Summer edition of the SCPHRP magazine, our second edition of 2017
We have had a busy 2017 so far at SCPHRP, we’ve said hello to a whole load of new people and said goodbye to a few. In this edition of the magazine we are sharing updates on some of the exciting projects we’ve been working on including our Citizen Science project, the 20mph Research Study, an Obesity Landscape project, and our Stand Up for Health project (which comes with a creative video from film-maker Felix Adamson). Hope you enjoy.
We would appreciate any feedback you have on what you like or what we could improve. If you have any, please send it to Sam at email@example.com. Thanks

Dr Arlene Bierman – Achieving Health Equity in Ontario: Lessons from the POWER Study
The POWER Study (Project for an Ontario Women’s Health Evidence-Based Report) produced a comprehensive Women’s Health Equity Report designed to provide actionable data for policy makers, providers, and consumers in their efforts to improve health and reduce health inequities in Ontario (www.powerstudy.ca).
Health inequities were assessed using a comprehensive set of evidence-based indicators bridging population health and health care for the leading causes of morbidity and mortality among women and men. The study examined gender differences, and also explicitly examined differences between diverse groups of women.
Sizable and modifiable inequities in health and health care on multiple measures were identified. Inequities in health status were much greater than inequities in access to and quality of care. Inequities in screening and chronic disease management were greater than inequities in care of acute conditions. Insights and lessons learned will be discussed.
