ghDate: 5 pm November 9, 2016

Why did the Canadian Medical Association just divest from fossil fuels?
Why can Canada’s MDs now invest in a fossil-free fund?
Why did Dr. James Orbinski, the doctor who accepted the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of Médecins Sans Frontières, focus on climate change in his recent keynote address to the Canadian Medical Association’s General Council?

Come hear Dr. Courtney Howard, the UBC-MD 2005 graduate and ER doc who led the CMA divestment charge, speak about the effects of climate change on the health of her arctic patient population…and learn what climate change means for all of our health.
