The Air Management Committee of the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment “manages intergovernmental approaches to air quality issues in Canada” This week, Dr. Cheryl Peters, a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Health Sciences, spoke to the committee about the results and tools generated from CAREX Canada on estimating exposure to airborne carcinogens in Canada.

CAREX Canada is a national multi-university program of research that aims to reduce occupational and environmental exposure to carcinogens; Dr. Peters is a co-Investigator. The Air Management Committee was most interested in the CAREX mapping tools for comparing carcinogen emissions between cities or health regions.
