OHCOW webinar: McIntyre Powder & neurological disorders


Dr. Paul Demers will present and discuss the results of the OCRC data linkage study that resulted in the Ontario Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) recognizing claims for Parkinson’s related to McIntyre Powder exposure.  The study also found elevated rates of Alzheimer’s and motor neuron disease among miners in general as compared to the general population of Ontario.

Participants will have an opportunity to ask Dr. Demers questions about the study, its findings, and future research on the McIntyre Powder miners.
