Lafayette Health Awareness Series


2022 Lafayette Health Awareness Series presents:

Our Planet-Our Health
Thursday October 6, 2022 7:00-9:00 PM



Join us for the Final Forum of the Lafayette Health Awareness Series. After nearly 20 years of bringing top experts in all fields of health to the Victoria Community, this culminating evening will explore our existence and the connections of our health and that of our precious Planet. The members of the Lafayette Quartet are proud to be able to host Katlia Lafferty, Canada’s first Poet Laureate in Climate Change, Dr. Valeria  Stoynova, one of the first proponents of “nature prescriptions” and one of the top researchers on the effects of Climate Change on human health, and Dr. Suzanne Simard, author of “Finding the Mother Tree: Discovering the Wisdom of the Forest”, a great researcher and voice illuminating the powerful and collaborative connections of trees and other living things.

In this last year of their career as an ensemble, The Lafayette String Quartet will perform several times throughout the evening. Please join the members of the quartet and their remarkable partners who have helped make this forum possible: Drs. Allen Hayashi, Darlene Hamell, Amita Modi, Scott Hofer and Marjon Blouw, and Leah Potter in what promises to be an evening filled with information and hope. On this timely topic as was the initial inspiration for this forum, we are better together as “What affects one of us – affects us all”.
