A winner has been chosen for the Public Health Champion Award. The Sudbury Health Unit put the call out for nominations, and the winner is Franco Mariotti.
The biologist, and retired Staff Scientist at Science North, is an advocate for promoting and protecting environmental initiatives. He was picked because of his achievements within the industry, including working on the Sudbury Soils Study, and the Healing the Landscape study.
“Being recognized as the first Public Health Champion is truly an honour,” says Mariotti. “No one person is able to achieve the level of improvements that have occurred in our community over the recent decades without having the meaningful engagement and collaboration of many dedicated supporters.”
