Join us in Saskatoon Oct. 4 at 7 pm
We’re excited to have veteran broadcaster Ralph Benmergui host a live podcast at the Roxy Theatre in Saskatoon this Friday night.
The topic: What does a healthy city look like?
We’ve got great guests who will talk about how to design more equitable cities, the role of food in healthy cities, and how better decision-making can fill the holes in health services.

She co-founded the City Centre Food Cooperative, a local initiative to provide affordable fresh food to Saskatoon’s downtown and surrounding areas. She has worked in the field of HIV since 2003, spanning the Native Friendship Centre in Montreal to the Saskatchewan HIV/AIDS Research Endeavour in Saskatoon.
Thilina Bandara is a population health researcher interested in understanding the implementation and effects of universal vs. targeted policy approaches in health and social systems, as well as in public and private innovations that work to improve health equity. He’s also on Upstream’s board.
And of course there’s host Ralph Benmergui, a Canadian television and radio personality, a writer, an ordained spiritual director, and a strategic advisor in political, environmental, and academic realms.
