Della: Hurdles to Health
Della: Hurdles to Health is a film that follows the life of a woman and her family in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The film provides a glimpse into the family’s daily struggles as a working poor family and illustrates how poverty affects health and wellbeing. Issues of housing, childcare, nutritious, accessible and affordable food, diabetes, and social supports are explored. A call to action ends the film – let’s learn, share and influence to make a difference in our community!
This film is a knowledge translation tool based on the Promoting Health Equity Project, which is being led by Saskatoon Health Region, University of Saskatchewan and other partners.
Thank you to Della and her family, Albert, Jaydan and Jarett for opening up their lives to us and participating in the film.
