Friday, January 19: 12:30 to 1:45 pm
Trevor Hancock, MHSc, is a public health physician and is currently a professor and senior scholar at the School of Public Health and Social Policy at UVic. He is one of the founders of the, now global, Healthy Cities and Communities movement and pioneered early work on the concept of “healthy public policy” in the 1980s. Trevor led a Canadian Public Health Association workgroup that resulted in a comprehensive discussion paper on the ecological determinants of health (May 2015) and was an external reviewer for the Rockefeller Foundation/ Lancet Commission on Planetary Health. A lot of his work now focuses on the health implications of the Anthropocene and local response in the form of a “One Planet” region. His lifetime contribution to public health has been recognised by the award of Honourary Fellowship in the UK’s Faculty of Public Health in 2015 and the Canadian Public Health Association’s Defries Medal in 2017.
