We know that we affect the environment, but how does the environment affect us and our health?
Our attention to environmental health issues is often the result of emergencies: Zika virus outbreaks; Flint, Michigan’s water crisis; Hurricane Katrina. Join us for a series of 6 lectures by nationally recognized leaders in the field as we expand our awareness of the ongoing impact of environmental risks on our health through a lens focused on social justice - particularly the disproportionate risks borne by low-income communities and communities of color.
Lectures are open to the public and free! Registration required.
