We would like to recognize the incredible work of Dr. Lynn Marshall, a leader in environmental medicine and many other fields. She was a giant in the field and helped countless patients experiencing multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS).
Dr. Lynn Marshall worked as a physician for 55 years, taught many students in her roles as a professor, and was involved with the Hypersensitivities Research Unit in Toronto.
Over her career she received many awards in Environmental Medicine, and pushed the field forward in many ways. She worked with many organizations that impacted environmental medicine across Canada including our own, and we are forever grateful for her knowledge, support and expertise that helped to build ASEQ-EHAQ to the organization that it is today. We will be forever grateful we had the opportunity to work with such a wonderful and knowledgeable individual.
This candle burns in memory of those who are deceased due to environmental sensitivities and also the millions of people affected by this condition who often suffer in silence, are misunderstood and isolated, go without health or social services, and receive no recognition from the authorities responsible for protecting public health and the environment.
