The Collaborative on Health and the Environment is excited to announce that we are launching a six-part webinar series on Cancer and the Environment: Science and Opportunities for Prevention. We will begin with an overview of environmental health and cancer, then dive into the recent scientific literature on occupational exposures, air pollution, water pollution, heavy metals, endocrine-disrupting chemicals, pesticides, and cancer risk. Then we will hear presentations on the latest research on chemical mixtures and cancers and the role of environmental factors in childhood cancers. To close the series, we will look at the disproportionate impact of environmental exposures on cancer in marginalized communities.
The first webinar in the series on Multifactorial Origins of Cancer, Case Studies of Environmental Chemicals and Cancer Risks, and a Systems Approach to Prevention will be held on February 19, 2020 at 10am/PDT 1pm EDT. Featured speakers include Ted Schettler, MD, MPH, Science and Environmental Health Network, Polly Hoppin, ScD, University of Massachusetts, Lowell and Barbara Cohn, PhD, Public Health Institute. Please RSVP to join us.
