Webinar – Environmental Health Research Opportunities Through CPTP and CANUE: Today and In The Future
February 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
The Canadian Urban Environmental Health Research Consortium (CANUE), funded by CIHR’s Environmental Health Signature Initiative, is advancing research on urban living and human health. One of CPTP’s key collaborators, CANUE provides pre-linked environmental exposure data for the cohort to help accelerate research to increase scientific understanding of the interactions among the physical features of the urban environment and health.
This webinar will provide an overview of the CANUE data and research opportunities made possible by linking CPTP’s individual lifestyle, genetic and behavioural data with CANUE’s environmental exposure metrics. This collaboration provides health researchers easy access to standardized urban environmental exposures, allowing them to tackle real-world problems related to exposures and the subsequent health outcomes. Ultimately, new knowledge enabled by the CANUE-CPTP partnership will help identify cost-effective actions that promote healthy childhood development and aging, reduce the burden of chronic disease, and minimize the impact of changing environments.
