How is climate change shifting and accelerating the spread of infectious diseases around the world? What are some of the impacts on societies, economics, and human and ecological health? The Institute for Pandemics (IfP) is pleased to co-host this public speaker series focused on climate change, infectious diseases and pandemics, together with the Emerging and Pandemic Infections Consortium (EPIC) and Climate Positive Energy (CPE).

Join Amy Greer for a presentation on climate change, pandemic risks and population health. Dr. Greer, who is an Associate Professor in the Department of Population Medicine at the University of Guelph, will explore the ways in which climate change is impacting the health of communities around the world — including the spread of infectious diseases and risk of future pandemics.

Following the keynote, Professor Greer will join in on an insightful panel discussion with University of Toronto’s David Fisman (Professor, Dalla Lana School of Public Health), Geoff Anderson (Professor, Institute for Health Policy, Management & Evaluation), and Unity Health Toronto’s Kamran Khan (Founder & CEO of BlueDot), moderated by Kate Allen, the climate change reporter at The Toronto Star. Learn about the latest research findings and policy initiatives aimed at mitigating the impact of climate change, and discover what you can do to help protect public health.
