For the second time this month, the centre will be hosting a lunch seminar series. Rosie Rowe, director of Community Services and Allied Health at Western District Health Service in Australia, will be discussing a strategic framework developed by a primary health partnership in rural Australia to guide local climate change planning and action. This should be a very interesting talk from someone who does not often step on Canadian soil, so please join us at the Tupper MedicalBuilding on March 26th. Further information and the webcasting address can be found Here.
