Cameron Mustard
Institute for Work & Health

Dr. Cameron Mustard retired in January of this year after 20 years at the helm of the Institute for Work & Health (IWH). Now, the former IWH president is ready to reflect on the Institute's research over those two decades, and the impact this research has had on improving practices and policies in Ontario that protect workers from occupational injury, illness and disability.

Please note that there will be plenty of space, both sitting and standing, for those who want or need to distance. The lecture venue is airy, with very high ceilings. Hand sanitizer will be available.
