Public Health Ontario and the Nutrition Resource Centre invite you to join a webinar, A local food environment policy framework: How to take action and measure change in Ontario, on Monday, April 8, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

The webinar will focus on current policies supporting healthy Canadian and American municipal food environments and present the Local Food-EPI framework and inventory as a resource for local governments to take action in their jurisdictions.

The webinar will be presented by Kimiya Karbasy and Dr. Lana Vardelee.

Kimiya Karbasy is a recent Master’s graduate from the University of Toronto whose thesis project focused on characterizing municipal food environment policies in North America to create a policy monitoring framework as a tool to help municipal governments identify and improve policy gaps in their jurisdictions.

Dr. Lana Vardelee is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Public Health and Health Systems and recently finished a Canadian Institutes of Health Research Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Toronto. Her research program broadly explores how government and food industry policies and interventions influence diet and health behaviours within Canada and internationally, with a focus on food labelling.
