Greetings SETACers,

Day 2 of the Laurentian and Prairie Northern SETAC’s 2nd Joint Annual General Meeting has arrived!  Join us from 7 – 9 pm EDT at the plenary panel discussion: Everybody Poops, Wastewater Based Epidemiology for Public Health Protection in the Time of Covid-19

In this Plenary, we will follow a small panel format, with two Speakers: Bernadette Conant (CEO, Canadian Water Network) and Tim Fletcher (Manager, Water Standards Section, Ontario Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks). Each speaker will share their experiences about how the science of wastewater surveillance and epidemiology transformed into action and policy in Canada and the Province of Ontario during the COVID-19 pandemic. Perspectives on the future of Wastewater epidemiology will also be presented. Finally, we will end with a 20-30 minutes discussion, including questions from the audience, that will be mediated by Dr. Denina Simmons (Assistant Professor, Ontario Tech University).
