Climate Change & Extreme Heat Webinar27 Oct, 2018 | Posted by: cnhe

Join Jennifer Morin RN, MN, CAE to learn how climate change and extreme heat impact our society. As our climate continues to change, extreme heat events and heat waves are expected to increase in frequency, length and severity, resulting in increased health risks for many Canadians. Additionally, the health effects related to air quality can increase the number of hospitalizations and visits to emergency departments as well as mortality rates.
Extreme heat is a current health risk. Older adults, those who are chronically ill and socially disadvantaged people, among others, are more vulnerable to health effects related to extreme heat. These effects can include serious illness and even death. In some parts of Canada, the annual number of extremely hot days is expected to more than double over the next 30 years (Government of Canada, 2018).

Please contact Jennifer with any questions or if you would like to set up an education seminar that is focused on content specific to your work environment through the CNHE website contact page.

Air Quality Health Index Webinar27 Oct, 2018 | Posted by: cnhe

Join Jennifer Morin RN, MN, CAE to learn how air quality affects our society. Air pollution is a growing health concern. The correlation between air pollution and cardiovascular and respiratory disease is strong. Individuals with existing heart and lung disease are at an increased risk, as are individuals with diabetes, older adults, young children, some members of the general population, pregnant women, and people who are active outdoors (exercise; workers). The effects of short-term exposure to pollution include exacerbation of pre-existing diagnosis such as asthma, COPD, and cardiovascular disease. Long-term exposure effects can include increased incidence of lung cancer, pneumonia, and the development of atherosclerosis.
