Wednesday November 10

Joint conference on theimpact of climate change on health in Quebec in collaboration with:

  • the Réseau Intersectoriel de Recherche en Santé de l’Université du Québec (RISUQ),
  • the Centre de Recherche Interdisciplinaire sur le Bien-être, la Santé, la Société et l’Environnement (CINBIOSE) of UQAM and,
  • the Centre Intersectoriel de santé durable de l’UQAC (CISD), to reflect on and discuss these questions together.

     

Climate change is already having an impact on the climate: record temperature increases, more frequent droughts or heavy precipitation, more frequent heat waves, more frequent extreme weather events (hurricanes, tornadoes, ice storms), more frequent forest fires, more frequent urban smog episodes, etc.). These changes will affect the entire province of Quebec, including the forest, agricultural and urban environments.

What will be the impact of these changes on health in Quebec?
How can we prepare for them?
What will be the important issues and how can we adapt scientific and medical research to adjust our response to these changes?

To answer these questions, we must adopt an intersectoral vision that includes researchers in basic research from all fields as well as clinicians, decision-makers and the community. As part of the conference, we get together with our colleagues from Université du Québec.

The program at a glance:

  • The impacts of climate change on health in Quebec, an overview.
  • Concertation on the environment, science, health and the community.
  • Presentation of the work of QRHN, RISUQ, CINBIOSE and CISD members in relation to environment and climate change.
  • Inter-network thematic workshop
  • Oral presentations by students on the subject of the environment
  • Discussion of selected poster presentations.

Thursday November 11

  • Oral presentations by students
  • Presentation of young researchers
  • General Assembly and discussion on the future of the Network in relation to the new vision of the FRQ-S
