2019 Social Justice & Public Health Lecture Series:

Environmental Justice & Public Health

Lander Hall A, 1557 Azuar Drive, 5 pm – 7 pm

Contact information: 707-638-5838, publichealth@tu.edu, http://cehs.tu.edu/publichealth/

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.
