- ItemThe state of reproductive health in Alberta: A Q&A with Dr. Carol Williams(2022) Williams, CarolWhen an individual’s physical, mental, and social health are compromised, their chances of falling into poverty are increased. Calgarians require broad access to an integrated health delivery system and services that are respectful of the diversity of personal situations.
