Environmental carcinogens in our home and prevention - free workshop

Tue Aug 19, 2014, Ottawa, ON

Environmental Defence is a charity that conducts research on the relationship between environment and health, and works to educate on how to avoid toxins in our homes and bodies. We will be presenting a two part workshop in Ottawa next week and we would like to invite you to attend.

WHEN & WHERE:
Tuesday August 19th 6:00 pm-8:30 pm at the Hub Ottawa (71 Bank St. 6th floor)

COST: FREE

About the workshops:

Part I: "Chemical Detective" offers information about common sources of exposure to toxic substances found in Canadian homes, and how to avoid these substances.

Part II: "Prevention and Action" offers environmental health leadership training, including tools for working towards reducing toxic pollution from consumer products, and brainstorming ways to speak out about this issue in our communities. This project is a collaboration with Breast Cancer Action Montreal.

We are hoping to hear from people who are concerned about the relationship between pollution and health. We are especially keen to hear from people whose lives have been touched by cancer, and want to learn more about how pollution is linked to prevention.

Anyone interested in attending can send a note to asidney (at) environmentaldefence.ca to RSVP.

Feel free to invite friends and family!
