GeoHealth Network is thrilled to partner with The Canadian Urban Environmental Health Research Consortium (CANUE) to bring you a seminar series! This series will feature students and graduates across Canada who have used CANUE datasets to advance understandings of the interactions between human health and our natural and built environments. Join us as we learn about the comprehensive range of linkable national urban exposure metrics available for health geography research and their direct applications. We will also include time for speakers to share their education and career journeys, and answer questions about their research.

Our 1st seminar will take place on Feb 26th from 1:00 – 2:00 pm EST on zoom.

One lucky student will walk away with two books from the Global Perspectives on Health Geography series (edited by Dr. Valorie Crooks, SFU), generously donated by Springer.

This seminar will feature Dr. Eleanor Setton (Managing Director, CANUE) and Dr. Dany Doiron (Research Associate, Respiratory Epidemiology and Clinical Research Unit, McGill University Health Centre). During this seminar, we will learn about CANUE’s mission and their available datasets and tools. A specific example of the work using CANUE data which resulted in the below publication will be discussed.

Doiron, Dany, Eleanor M. Setton, Kerolyn Shairsingh, Michael Brauer, Perry Hystad, Nancy A. Ross, and Jeffrey R. Brook. ‘Healthy Built Environment: Spatial Patterns and Relationships of Multiple Exposures and Deprivation in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver’. Environment International 143 (1 October 2020): 106003.

Thanks to generous donations and contributions from CANUE, Springer Texts, Dr. Valorie Crooks (SFU Geography), University of Toronto Dept of Geography and Planning, and University of Toronto School of Cities!
