Bruce Lanphear MD, MPH  and  David L. Buckeridge, MD PhD FRCPC

Bruce Lanphear is a Clinician Scientist at the BC Children’s Research Institute and a Professor in the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia. He has been a leader in international research examining effects of toxicants on child health. Over the past decade, Dr. Lanphear has become increasingly vexed by our inability to control the “pandemic of consumption” – the largely preventable, worldwide epidemic of chronic disease and disability due to widespread exposure to industrial pollutants, environmental contaminants and excess consumption. He is leading an effort to produce videos to enhance
public understanding of how our health is inextricably linked with the environment and elevate efforts to prevent disease.  
David Buckeridge is a Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at McGill University in Montreal where he holds the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Applied Public Health Chair in eHealth Interventions. A Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada with specialty training in Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Dr Buckeridge practices Public Health as a Medical Consultant to the Montreal Public Health Department, the Quebec Public Health Institute, and the Quebec Institute for Excellence in Health and Social Services. As a clinician-scientist in public health, his research and practice focus on the informatics of public health surveillance and disease control. At McGill, Dr Buckeridge directs the Surveillance Lab, which is an interdisciplinary group of over twenty students and staff with a mission to develop, implement, and evaluate novel computational methods for public health surveillance. Laboratory research activities are funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council, the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Dr Buckeridge has consulted on surveillance to groups such as the Public Health Agency of Canada, Canada Health Infoway, the US Institute of Medicine, the US and Chinese Centers for Disease Control, the European Centers for Disease Control, and the World Health Organization. He has a M.D. from Queen's University, a M.Sc. in Epidemiology from the University of Toronto, and a Ph.D. in Biomedical informatics from Stanford University.
