By Lindsay Advocate

HKPR Health Promoter Sue Shikaze will be addressing the Lindsay Canadian Club on March 13.

The Lindsay Canadian Club is inviting members of the public to the fifth event of its 2023-2024 season: “Connecting The Dots: Climate Change & Health,” which takes place on March 13, 2024.

Guest speaker Sue Shikaze, a health promoter with the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit, will be discussing the impact of climate change on human health, whose health is most at-risk, and what we can do as individuals and a community to ensure our health is protected from climate hazards.

Shikaze is leading HKPR’s work on assessing local impacts of climate change on health and developing plans for adaptation. She is a seasoned presenter and facilitator who has worked with diverse groups in a variety of settings. She lives in the Haliburton Highlands and loves to spend time outside on trails and water in all seasons. Shikaze is also an avid runner and cyclist, and uses both for recreation and active transportation.

The Lindsay Canadian Club meets at the Royal Canadian Legion (12 York Street, Lindsay), and encourages everyone to grab a bite to eat downtown before coming to events, which get underway at 7:00 p.m.

Non-members can purchase tickets via the Lindsay Canadian Club’s website or at the door. Tickets for this event are $10 ($5 for students), and a season’s membership can be purchased for $50 ($25 for students).
