An interdisciplinary group of 17 people from 13 different departments, including the Microplastics and Social Exposome clusters, Public Health, Chemistry, Urban Forestry etc. attended our symposium.
Four trainees presented their interesting work:
- Justin Turner (PhD student, Pulmonary Rehabilitation Research Laboratory): Wildfire season experiences among First Nations communities in north central British Columbia
- Katherine White (PhD student, School of Population and Public Health): Measuring indoor heat exposure in the City of Vancouver
- Emily Gemmell (PhD student, School of Population and Public Health): Habitats for happiness: development and application of a novel playability metric for Canadian urban neighbourhoods
- Johanna Bock (PhD student, Urban Natures Lab): Benefits of urban green space visits – Insights from the City of Vancouver
It was a pleasure to see participants make use of this networking opportunity by catching up with colleagues and getting to know new members!
