The McMaster Institute of Environment and Health’s (MIEH) goal is to facilitate, promote, and publish environment and health research, and to share expertise with the broader community.
MIEH director Jim Dunn will talk about possible synergies between the institute and CHEPA at a seminar on Wednesday May 28.
Dunn holds a Chair in Applied Public Health from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) for his program of research on interventions in residential neighbourhoods and population health. He is also a Fellow in the Successful Societies Program of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR - www.cifar.ca) and an associate professor in McMaster's department of health, aging & society.
He has a PhD in geography from Simon Fraser University and an MA and a BA(Hons) from McMaster.
His own research focuses on socio-economic inequalities in health in urban areas.
The seminar will be held on Wednesday May 28 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in CRL B119. All are welcome. The seminars will be available remotely for those who are unable to attend.
