Social Justice Lecture Series 2019

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.

Join us for a series of 6 lectures by nationally recognized leaders in the field as we examine environmental risks to our health - particularly the disproportionate risks borne by low-income communities and communities of color.
