Remembering Dr. Lynn Marshall

CPCHE has lost a dear colleague and friend. Dr. Lynn Marshall passed away on April 14, 2022. 

Lynn was a founding partner in CPCHE, representing the Ontario College of Family Physicians and the Environmental Health Clinic at Women’s College Hospital and, later on, the Environmental Health Institute of Canada which she co-founded in 2006. Over CPCHE’s two decades of collaborative work, she has been a tireless and passionate advocate for children’s environmental health protection and a delightful and generous colleague and friend. 
 
Our thoughts and condolences are with her family and all those who were fortunate to have known her. She will be greatly missed.

Every Child Matters.

As revelations of Canada’s dark history of residential schools continue to come to light, we must all commit to learn more and do more to ensure that every child has a healthy, safe and nurturing place to learn, grow and play.
