Published Book on Cancer Presumptive History

Posted by

We are proud to announce that Alex Forrest has recently contributed to the publication of a book detailing the colourful history behind the Manitoba Firefighter Presumptive Cancer Legislation.

Canadian Ambassador Gary Doer penned the books’s foreword, and doctors Tee Guidotti & Nancy Lightfoot contributed as two of the world’s leading cancer epidemiologists.

As a result of Alex & UFFW’s efforts, Manitoba became the first jurisdiction in the world to implement presumptive-cancer legislation for firefighters and the provision of post-traumatic stress disorder coverage under the Workers Compensation Board.
