Code Red – A call to action

Code Red Series

Recently, in the Hamilton Spectator, the Code Red Series appeared about the city: Where you live affects your health.

We are in a city that has unacceptable realities when it comes to the divide of health outcomes and expectancies, which vary greatly from neighbourhood to neighbourhood. Changes have occurred and the city is changing. we are also a city with a wealth of leadership and possibilities. Code Red is a call to action, to shape and change our future.

Neil Johnston, researcher and contributor to the series suggested a long list of suggestions: economic stimulation, economic incentives, programs in schools, early-childhood education, incentives for pregnant mothers to accept prenatal care, making sure that kids are immunized, even paying incentives to family physicians to do things they may not be doing now, including taking on time-consuming patients, such as the mentally ill.

As leaders in early childhood education and out of school programs, what are your thoughts?
