The three main purposes of our recent program of health disparity research were to: a) investigate health disparities in Saskatoon, including the determinants associated with health disparities; b) implement and evaluate evidence-based population health interventions aimed at decreasing health disparities; and c) engage in integrated Knowledge Translation (KT) to raise awareness of health disparities and prompt action.

Goals / Outcomes: With the investigation and intervention implementation/evaluation phases completed, we now aim to continue the knowledge translation work already begun. KT activities will focus on promoting awareness and action for health equity among two primary audiences: the community and decision makers.
