Dr. David Fisman (Toronto, ON) summarized the implications of changing weather patterns and extreme environmental events for infectious disease epidemiology globally and in Canada. He provided evidence linking transmission of vector-borne diseases (including Lyme disease and West Nile virus infection) as well as certain enteric diseases to extreme weather and climatic changes in the Canadian context. This special lecture was presented at the recent AMMI-Canada /CACMID Annual Conference in Victoria, BC on April 3, 2014. Download presentation.
