  • STINK! — The movie the chemical industry doesn’t want you to see…
    Digital Release: Online now!

“Stink!” opens with a foul smell and a pair of kids pajamas. And a single father trying to find out what that smell could possibly be. But instead of getting a straight answer, director Jon Whelan stumbles on an even bigger issue in America, which is that some products on our store shelves are not safe — by design.

The movie takes you on a journey from the retailer to the laboratory, through corporate boardrooms, down back alleys, and into the halls of Congress — exposing the darkest secrets of the chemical industry. You won’t like what you smell.

  • Occupational & Environmental Cancer: Recognition and Prevention
    Online Now / Free

Many Canadians encounter carcinogens in their workplace or environment. Sometimes this exposure will cause cancer. Recognition of cancer from occupational or environmental causes is difficult because, in most cases, these cancers cannot be distinguished from other cancers. This course teaches primary health care providers how to recognize occupational and environmental cancers and how to respond to this finding. Insights are provided into how the recognition of occupational and environmental cancer risks can lead to prevention. Case studies will highlight key points and allow participants to apply lessons learned.
