This year we have a speaker and a topic that are completely different. Dr. Shane Journeay, is currently completing his residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University Health Network and Toronto Rehabilitation Institute. However, that is just his latest endeavour. He has already received his M.D. from Dalhousie, a PhD in Toxicology /Nanotechnology from the U. of Saskatchewan, a Certificate in Space Studies from the International Space University SSP in Strasbourg, France, a Masters in Human Thermoregulation /Cardiovascular Physiology from the U. of Ottawa, and an Honours BSc in Human Kinetics from the U. of Ottawa. In addition, he is the CEO of his own consulting company -Nanotechnology Toxicology Consulting and Training (NTC&T). Hopefully he will have a bit of time to tell us about some of these diverse fields, however he also spent some time working with NASA for the Canadian Space Agency and based on his work there he will be giving the following presentation:
TITLE: Adventures in Space Medicine
Outline: He plans to tell us about his background, how it applies to space medicine, and how space medicine applies to what we do on earth. He will focus on his studies and training at the International Space University in Strasbourg, France (representing Canada in 2006) and more recently his time behind the scenes at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston (where he was sponsored by the Canadian Space Agency). There will be lots of pictures and possibly a video, and we will hear about some of the personalities involved, including Canadian Astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield, and others. He plans to give us an overview and a perspective of manned space flight with a focus on his experiences as a Physician, Scientist and even an as entrepreneur.
