Fundraising Gala Speaker Announcement


We are so excited to announce Dr. Melissa Lem as the keynote speaker for our First Call Fundraising Gala on February 27, 2020. She is a board member of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, strategic advisor to the BC Parks Foundation, journalist for various media outlines, was a resident medical expert on the CBC TV show Steven and Chris, and is a Vancouver-based family physician. She will speak about the scientific evidence around the health impacts of fracking and climate change on children and youth. She will also share some on-the-ground stories about how local people have been affected and are advocating for the health of their families and communities, as well as how children and youth are moving the dial of government and public opinion on climate change.
