Join us on January 24, 2019 at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern for the first in a 3-part webinar series on climate change, toxic hazards, and how to prepare to protect public health before, during, and after a superstorm or flood. In this webinar, speakers will describe a range of potential exposures to mixtures of toxic chemicals in water, air, and industrial sources that may be encountered during climate disasters and how to prepare to avoid them. The webinar will address the status of cleanup of Superfund sites nationwide, and how communities and businesses are changing preparation processes based on lessons learned from prior storms like Maria, Harvey, Irma, and Florence.
Speakers are Tiffany Skogstrom, MPH, Outreach and Chemical Policy Analyst for the Building Chemical Safety Into Climate Change Resiliency Project at the Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance and Jennifer Horney, PhD, Professor and Founding Director of the Program in Epidemiology and Core Faculty at the Disaster Research Center at the University of Delaware.
