Yesterday I had the honour and the pleasure of speaking to The Ontario Public Health Convention.  The title of my talk, “Inside the black box: science, politics and healthy public policy” gives a good sense of the themes developed in my presentation.  I specifically made an argument about the limits of evidence for making public health policy, presented some key ideas about the policy process arising from political science theories of policy making; and ended with a short defense of “politics”.

A copy of the notes for my presentation is available here.
