Research Seminar‑ Dr. Daniel Rainham ‑School of Health and Human Performance

Posted by School of Health and Human Performance on May 24, 2023 in General Announcements

This week in the HaHP research seminar we are in for a real treet, because Dr. Daniel Rainham will be speaking with us about the Health Promotion work looking at “Trees with Benefits.” Specifically, how urban tree characteristics modify associations between summer temperatures and mortality. Given our proximity to the summer months and some of the peak temperatures that have occurred in recent years, this seminar is perfectly timed.

Please come join the HaHP research committee on May 26th @ 2pm in Dalplex 204, as we learn about the potential benefits that our deciduous and coniferous friends have on our health.  

Daniel is professor in health promotion, a member of the Healthy Populations Institute, and flagship project co-lead of the Creating Sustainable Health Systems in a Climate Crisis project at Dalhousie University. He works with a fantastic team of trainees and colleagues to explore the relationships between the quality of the environment and human health. His research is focused on measuring characteristics of the environment, investigating how these characteristics affect our health, and experimenting with solutions and interventions toward a sustainable, healthy lifespan.
