Presentation by Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health and Sheila Datta, Epidemiologist, Health Services

Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health and Sheila Datta, Epidemiologist, Health Services presented findings from the 2011 Student Health Survey which was conducted from February to April 2012 with students in grades 7 to 12. The survey included a self-completed questionnaire, height and weight measurements, oral health assessment (grades 10 and 12 only) and physical fitness assessment (grade 9 only). Findings include: dietary quality declines as students transition from elementary to secondary school; the most commonly reported mode of transportation to school was car; 41 per cent of current smokers have someone else buy cigarettes for them or have them given by friends and family and 50 per cent report buying them themselves from a retailer. Dr. Mowat stated that the survey results will be used to support public health planning, delivery and management of Peel’s school-aged population and will be shared with key stakeholders including school boards and Peel Children and Youth Initiative.

Councillor Miles noted that the number of children living in poverty is on the rise and may be a factor related to some of the results from the survey. She further noted that the findings reveal how the chronic underfunding of health and human services in the Region of Peel over the past 20 years have affected the population’s overall health.

Councillor McCallion expressed concern regarding the amount of screen time and cell phone use by children, noting that there needs to be awareness of the potential health effects.

In response to a question from Councillor Sprovieri, the Medical Officer of Health undertook to provide him with information related to the number of survey participants who are Canadian born.

Councillor Mullin requested that the survey results be shared with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC).

Dr. Mowat stated that staff would be reporting to the October 25, 2012 Regional Council meeting with a strategy for addressing the findings of the survey related to obesity, eating habits and lack of physical activity, noting that the health impacts revealed through the youth survey provide an indication of their future adult health.

Councillor Fonseca requested the future report include strategies for incorporating more movement into daily lives and recommendations related to helping students understand the importance of eating healthy foods.

In response to a question from Councillor Crombie, Dr. Mowat stated that smoking rates have declined but the rate of decline has stalled.
