The effects of climate change on health
We invite you to read Changements climatiques et impacts sur la santé, a summary published in May with a foreword by our Chapter president, Dr. Caroline Laberge. The goal of this publication is to provide you with concrete tools for use in the context of care.

The QCFP in the media
Our QCFP prize winners are featured in a wonderful article in the July 2021 publication of Le Médecin du Québec.
Where should we start when it comes to addressing the impact of environmental issues on health? Our president, Dr. Caroline Laberge, has written an inspiring article “Enjeux environnementaux et impacts sur la santé : par où commencer?” for ProfessionSanté that explores several areas of interest.
