David Bowering – Citizens or Consumers Health vs. ‘The Economy’
From CTLT User on February 13th, 2019
Presentation date: February 25, 2015 Dr. David Bowering is a former General Practitioner and retired Chief Medical Health Officer with Northern Health. "The Economy" is frequently referred to in health-related terms: a "healthy economy," an "ailing economy," "an economy on life support," etc. Dr. Bowering has become increasingly interested in the relationship between our current obsession with the health of the economy and its effect on human health and well being. He will be discussing this from a professional perspective, as a long time resident of Northwest BC, and as a grandfather considering the prospects for both current and future generations. Rather than offer a diagnosis and a prescription Dr. Bowering hopes to help stimulate critical thinking about the economy informed by our current understanding of what makes people healthy.
