Public Health and Climate Change
Green 13 is pleased to announce that Carol Mee, Manager, Healthy Public Policy, Toronto Public Health, will speak at Annette Library. Ms. Mee is the lead manager for the recent "Climate Change and Health Strategy 2016" for the City. We’ve asked her to please speak about public health and climate change (e.g. heat waves; extreme cold; insect-borne disease such as West Nile virus, Lyme disease; asthma…), new Ward Health Profiles (Ward 13, Ward 14), and considerations around vulnerability (e.g. confidentiality). This presentation is part of a series of follow-up events emerging from the recent Ward 13/14 Roundtable on Community Preparedness for Extreme Weather Events. http://www.green13toronto.org/blog/ward-1314-roundtable-community-preparedness-extreme-weather-events  Free. Please join us, meet your neighbours, and help build community resilience.

Please share word of this important talk by Carol Mee among your organization/community and contacts. Please post widely.
