Worker Particulate Exposure & Heart Disease: Case Study on McIntyre Powder

February 26 @ 12:00 pm

Reviewing clinical experience & current research on critical CVD particulate hazards, and related opportunities for prevention.

In Canada, heart disease is the second leading cause of death, with 1 in 12 Canadians over the age of 20 living with a diagnosis. Smoking, unhealthy diet, and lack of physical activity are well-known risk factors. However, occupational and environmental exposures are also becoming increasingly recognized as important. Join Dr. Andrew Zarnke PhD, and Dr. Sandra Dorman PhD, as they explain the health effects of the inhalation of fine particles in the workplace, and the associated contribution to heart disease using McIntyre Powder as a case example.

Host: Dave Wilken, OHCOW, Chief Operating Officer

Speakers:

Dr. Andrew Zarnke PhD, OHCOW, Project Director

Dr. Sandra Dorman PhD, Centre for Research in Occupational Safety and Health (CROSH), Director
