If you give him a minute, Jamie Harvie is the kind of person who can tell you how all kinds of disparate things are connected.

Take for example, the upcoming Accountable Communities conference, put together in part by Harvie's Institute for a Sustainable Future. There, you'll learn how a gathering ostensibly billed as a health conference connects personal, economic, social and environmental health as well.

Housing as health care?  Harvie says it's all a question of "putting things in right relationship."
