Thank you Derek for allowing me to tag along while you do your work. Derek was kind and showed me the work that he does on a day to day basis. His work consists of enforcing The Yard & Lot maintenance by-law PW9.

Today is World Autism Awareness Day. Let us continue to educate ourselves and work to create a more understanding, equitable and inclusive world for those with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

 

April 7th marks the beginning of 100 days of mourning when we remember the victims of the 1994 Rwandan Genocide against Tutsis. I’ll also be remembering the 1993 Burundian Genocide! #Kwibuka

What a day! Hearing Dr. Jill Andrew deliver a keynote speech, receiving an award delivered by Mitzie Hunter and being on a panel with the amazing Tiffany Ford and Felicia Samuel is a perfect way to enjoy a Saturday!

So excited to be at this International Women’s Day 2019 event organized by Western USC by amazing women in the women studies council. And I got flowers!

Happy International Women’s Day. Following the theme of balance, let us commit to gender equity, calling out discrimination in all its forms and celebrating the many women who have achieved so much.

I was honored to be part of the speakers’ panel today at an event hosted by the Middlesex-London Health Unit. This event gave an update to the local response on the opioid crisis and presented data on opioid-related deaths in 2018.It takes a village to solve a crisis and these numbers show that together, we can do just that. Once again, thank you to all the community partners involved.

 

“The local strategy to respond to the opioid crisis has been built on the four pillars of prevention, treatment, harm reduction and enforcement. Each of the partners that has collaborated in this response has been able to provide services and support that align with this model that has been shown to reduce the potentially deadly outcomes associated with addiction to opioid drugs. While the results so far are encouraging, much remains to be done.”
