A member of the Management Team for the Canadian Northern Contaminants Program, he advised provinces/territories on how to monitor human health concerns resulting from elevated contaminant exposure in the traditional diets of aboriginal mothers and children. He also chaired the International Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme's (AMAP) Human Health Assessment group. He will speak as well about the circumpolar Arctic Human Health Assessments that were key components in global acceptance of the United Nations Environmental Programmes (UNEP), treaties to control Persistent Organic Pollutants and Toxic Metals.
