Health Impacts of Climate Change Strikes a Chord
The Canada briefing on the Lancet Countdown: Tracking Progress on Health and Climate Change has garnered attention from national and local press, including CBC News, CBC Radio, Global News and the Ottawa Citizen.
The DIGHR hosted the launch event, which saw over 100 people gather at York University and hundreds more tune in via livestream. Panelists included leaders of medical associations and civil society organizations as well as researchers. They discussed Canada’s role in shaping climate change globally as well as what global climate change means for Canada.
Videos from the event will be posted on the DIGHR website in the coming weeks.
