Media Advisory - Hot air over coffee? - CIHR Café Scientifique in Toronto: Discussions and debates on air pollution



    TORONTO, Sept. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - Have you ever wondered how air pollution
can affect you? Media representatives are invited to attend a Café
Scientifique, hosted by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and
its Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health, that addresses the
negative effects of air pollution on the health of Toronto residents and some
potential policies that could be put in place to bring about positive change.
    What is a Café Scientifique? Remember when you used to spend untold hours
sitting around a table over a beer or coffee with your friends, solving all
the problems of the world, debating all the "big questions" of the day? Café
Scientifique is, simply put, a larger and slightly more organized version of
those conversations. It's an opportunity to bring together researchers with
members of the public to spark a discussion about some of the most interesting
- and sometimes contentious - research currently underway in Canada.
