BMC showed work from their gallery Saturday, March 23 as part of “Health in the City“.

Health in the City showcased solutions to some of the health risks–diabetes, cardiovascular disease and certain cancers–experienced by residents of Peel as a result of sedentary lifestyles and poor nutrition.

BMC Director, Nick Woolridge, and graduate students Agnes Chan, Erin Kenzie, Brendan Polley and Andrew Tran answered questions about BMC from visitors to the event. Mayor Hazel McCallion even stopped by!

BMC provided iPads to interested guests to try some of the interactive education tools developed by BMC alumni including award-winning, “Learn About Biliary Atresia” by Lyndsay Stephenson, 1T2.
