Failing for Forty Years: What the Poison Papers Tell Us About the EPA and How to Reform It

Dr. Jonathan Latham, Director of the Bioscience Resource Project and donor of the Poison Papers to the UCSF Chemical Industry Documents library, will talk about the importance of the 20,000-document collection and how they expose problems with both the internal culture of the EPA and its legal framework that are often fraught with industry influences that prevent precautionary decision-making, even when the science clearly points to danger.

Lecture from 10:00-11:00am at Byers Auditorium in Genentech Hall on UCSF's Mission Bay campus. Brunch reception to follow in Genentech Hall Atrium from 11am-12pm.
