Poor recreational water quality poses a risk of acute gastrointestinal illness (AGI) to beach goers engaging in water activities. In this webinar, we will discuss the environmental factors influencing beach water quality in Canada and present key findings of the project. The speakers, Dr. Johanna Sanchez and Dr. Binyam Desta, will share their research on enteric infections and the effect on health outcomes, with a focus on water, hygiene, and sanitation. Join us to gain a greater understanding of the factors affecting water quality and how they can assist in timely decision-making and risk communication strategies to reduce recreational water illness risks among beachgoers.
