Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Sheela Basrur
Community Forum on Obesity Prevention with Dr. Sheela Basrur, Chief Medical Officer of Health, Province of Ontario to speak on obesity with reference to the Segway.
Niagara Region, public health officials and the province of Ontario have all identified the prevention of obesity as a key strategic priority for the coming years. The issue requires the support of numerous community agencies and partners in order to be effective. 2005 will see the development of an “Obesity Prevention Campaign”, starting with a community forum bringing together all these voices required to develop a successful strategy. To learn more about this issue and our regional approach to addressing it, join us at the upcoming Community Forum on Monday, April 18 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Quality Hotel Parkway, St. Catharines. Our keynote speaker, Dr. Sheela Basrur, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, will provide a concise overview of her groundbreaking report: ““Healthy Weights – Health Lives”.
