November 5, 2008
Ten-year anniversary for the Toronto Cancer Prevention Coalition
Dr. David McKeown, Medical Officer of Health, will help celebrate 10 years of development and milestones of the Toronto Cancer Prevention Coalition by releasing the document, ‘Ten Years Later.’ The group will also reflect on the major themes emerging from the report to chart the course for the next decade.

Date: Thursday, November 6
Time: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Dr. McKeown to speak at 9:15 a.m.)
Location: Bond Place Hotel, 65 Dundas St. E.

‘Ten Years Later’ tells a story of a passionate and dedicated body of people from government, academe, the labour movement, health and environmental groups, school boards, citizens and cancer survivors, all of whom have brought their individual expertise to the Coalition and its comprehensive agenda of cancer prevention.

In 1998, the coalition created a vision of prevention unknown and unrealized in other municipalities. In 2008, the coalition has stood the test of time, and accomplished or influenced much of the prevention work being done throughout Canada today.

Other speakers at the event include Councillor Joe Mihevc and Fiona Nelson, Chair of the Toronto Cancer Prevention Coalition. Ruth Grier, Former Ontario Minister of Health and Minister of the Environment will moderate the event.
