Join NYAM staff for a brown bag lunch with Professor Evelyne de Leeuw. The lunch discussion will be on the complex rationalities in policymaking for health promotion.
This presentation will look at this issue from a health political science perspective, and suggest that we need to move beyond ‘knowledge translation’ into ‘nexus network mapping.’
