Event Details

The Canada Walks department of Green Communities Canada presents this 1.5 hour webinar featuring presenter, Kim Bergeron, PhD. Candidate, Queen’s University.  This webinar will answer the question, “From the evidence, what do we know about the association between the built environment and injury risk and prevention?”  This session will also present strategies to reduce injury risk through the design of the built environment, with a focus on pedestrian design.

 

Kim is a requested keynote speaker and facilitator for provincial and national events. She is known for working to bridge the knowledge gap between land-use planners and public health professionals, trained at the Built Environment Assessment Training Institute and is a Certified Concept Mapping Facilitator. Kim is currently working on a PhD. with a focus on developing a land-use planning and public health framework to promote the design of active communities. Her research involves data collection from land-use planners, public health professionals, and provincial policy makers.  Kim is the Chair of the Planning Active Communities across Ontario Committee, a committee that engages provincial policy makers, land-use planners and public health professionals to work collaboratively to develop tools and resources to support the design and promotion of active communities.
