‚ÄčNote: This is an open invitation, and may be forwarded to interested parties.

The impact of ambient cold temperatures on health has gained renewed attention in North America owing to extreme cold temperatures in recent winters. Advances in understanding the impact of cold temperatures can help develop interventions to benefit population health.

During this talk, we will review cold warning systems in Ontario, and in other jurisdictions. We will present new findings from the Ontario Population Health and Environment Cohort study on cold-related health burdens in Ontario. We will then translate these findings into potential interventions (with a focus on vulnerable populations) and the role of surveillance in assessing the impact of these interventions.

Presenters: Dr. Hong Chen and Dr. Ariella Zbar
