Children and Environmental Toxins: What Everyone Needs to Know
October 20, 2018 @ 12:30 am - 2:30 am UTC+0
Join us for an extraordinary opportunity to hear from someone who has shaped public health policy and saved the lives of children around the world.
Dr. Philip Landrigan is an international leader in public health and preventive medicine. He is a pediatrician and epidemiologist and his pioneering research on the effects of lead poisoning in children led the US government to mandate the removal of lead from gasoline. His leadership of a National Academy of Sciences Committee on pesticides in children’s diets resulted in the passage of the Food Quality Protection Act in 1996, a major US federal pesticide law and the first environmental statute to contain specific protections for infants and children.
