In the spring of 2015, with support from Wellesley Institute, Toronto Public Health and the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, the Healthier Cities & Communities Hub awarded nine seed grants to research teams comprised of community, public sector and university collaborators. The seed grant projects are solutions-focused and address a range of social determinants of health to improve health in Toronto and beyond. They focus on: creating resilient cities, the built environment and health, and place-based interventions.

 About the Healthier Cities and Communities Hub
The Dalla Lana School of Public Health thematic concentration in Healthier Cities & Communities is solutions-focused: we go beyond describing health inequities and determinants to undertake research that generates evidence useful for intervening to improve health. Our work encompasses education, research, knowledge translation, and service activities focused on informing, designing and evaluating solutions for complex urban problems impacting population health.
