Media Advisory: CEO of Heart & Stroke Foundation to Address Economic Club

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2011) - In the face of an uncertain economy, new dangers are presenting themselves as a threat to Canadian businesses. The Heart and Stroke Foundation in its just release Report Card on Canadian's Health looks at the very threat heart disease and stroke pose in today's workplace. Be our guest on Thursday, February 24, when David Sculthorpe, CEO of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario, will discuss how today's workplace is impacting the health of your employees and threatening the talent pool of businesses. Heart disease and stroke are going viral in the workplace and the risk factors for a corporate heart attack are a lot like those for a human patient. The other shoe is about to fall and soon we will realize the economic consequences of heart disease and stroke – lost hours, lost efficiency and a lost generation of loyal and experienced workers. David Sculthorpe's career is global in its scope and spans both the entrepreneurial and corporate worlds. He has held a variety of executive positions including President at consumer product and pharmaceutical corporations such as Warner Lambert, Cadbury Schweppes PLC, and Pfizer; he has successfully established and run his own companies; and he has worked in South America, France, the United States, and Canada.
