Please join us on October 23, 2019 at 9 am Pacific / 12pm Eastern for TEDX’s final webinar, celebrating 16 years of championing safe environments for healthy hormone functioning. Hear stories about our successes, listen to expert opinions about what’s next for EDCs and fracking chemicals, and learn how to stay connected to the latest resources. We look forward to spending this time with you, answering questions, and hearing your thoughts!
Laura Vandenberg, PhD, Associate Professor and Graduate Program Director in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences in the University of Massachusetts Amherst School of Public Health and Health Sciences, will provide a 10,000-foot view of the field of endocrine disruption, including what she sees on the horizon for the science, policy, and public awareness of this class of chemicals.
Genon Jensen, Founder and Executive Director of the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL), will share how TEDX’s scientific and communication resources and the foundation that Theo Colborn and Carol Kwiatkowski built around EDCs has influenced and supported policies in the European Union, and contributed to the EDC-Free Europe coalition’s work over the past decade. She will also offer a perspective on ramping up this progress in light of the EU Commission’s political priorities, which set out a zero-pollution strategy including reducing everyday exposures to EDCs.
Sara Wylie, PhD, Assistant Professor of Anthropology/Sociology and Health Science at Northeastern University, will discuss how engaged, collaborative and caring research will continue the work of TEDX and Theo Colborn by building public research archives, informing federal agencies and decision-makers on emerging environmental public health issues, and developing informed public engagement on environmental health topics.
