Environmental Science for MomsEnvironmental Science for Moms
Date: March 2-4, 2011
Location: Bolinas, CA
Description: The goal of this training to teach mothers about environmental health science is to give you a basic scientific understanding so that you can be more confident as an advocate for a healthier world. The training will cover the following: 1) prenatal and early-life exposures to toxic chemicals, how they can increase risk for disease and health problems in the immediate and long-term and the complexity of how they relate to other risk factors (for example, nutrition, stress or genetics); 2) possible responses when there is not scientific certainty about the health impacts of chemical exposures (also referred to as the precautionary principle); and 3) practical exercises so that you can practice using your scientific understanding to speak out in various advocacy efforts. This training will address some basic things people can do in their everyday lives to avoid chemical exposure, but will primarily focus on evidence-based science in lay language that you can use for advocacy. This training is sponsored by The Collaborative on Health and Environment in partnership with MOMS (Making Our Milk Safe).

Healthy Aging Starts at Conception: Promoting Health Across the LifespanHealthy Aging Starts at Conception: Promoting Health Across the Lifespan
Date: March 11, 2011
Location: Teleconference/Webcast
Description: Beginning in the womb and continuing throughout life, environmental factors are strong determinants of throughout the lifespan. Reproductive, children's, midlife and elder health are inherently interconnected. In addition, various features of our biological, social and natural environments, alone and in combination, can affect health at any time in the life continuum. These stressors can also accumulate and influence genetic expression, and even the health of future generations. This call will discuss how we can advance a more positive path if we understand and address the interrelationships of health and the environment throughout life, and explore commonsense and also innovative approaches that may prevent chronic disease, foster health and sustain local and global economies. We will also address the importance of interventions that address the structural, systemic origins of many diseases that can be designed to benefit ecosystems more generally, thereby linking human health to planetary health.

Atmospherics Toxics Webinar SeriesAtmospherics Toxics Webinar Series
Date: March 15, 2011
Location: Teleconference/Webcast
Description: Over the last six years, the Great Lakes Commission (GLC), under funding from the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and in cooperation with the eight Great Lakes states, has awarded research grants dealing with atmospheric toxic pollutants affecting the Great Lakes and their tributary watersheds. Thirty-five research grants have been awarded since 2004 addressing a diverse array of research concerning atmospheric pollutant loadings and movement within the basin and the associated impacts of numerous persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT) chemicals on wildlife and human health. A substantial amount of new scientific knowledge has been attained through these research activities. The GLAD webinar series is intended to provide a forum for GLAD Principal Investigators (PIs) to disseminate information on their respective research activities, including specific findings, recommended follow-up actions, and potential public policy actions to foster elimination of PBT threats to the region.
