On November 2 the McGill Faculty of Medicine held a day-long conference at McGill’s Faculty Club sponsored by McGill Global Health Programs, the Institute for Health and Social Policy, the Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health and the McGill Sustainability Systems Initiative.

Featuring a combination of panels and invited keynote speakers on topics including the benefits of public transportation, air pollution and environmental equality, the event brought together a bevy of thought leaders from academia and government and other stakeholder groups, while providing opportunities for those interested in environmental and sustainability health sciences to learn about the groundbreaking work being conducted in the region and beyond.
