The Barry Commoner Environmental Lecture Series, Featuring Dr. Tyrone Hayes
This year’s lecture, titled “From Silent Spring to Silent Night: A Tale of Toads and Men,” will be given by Tyrone Hayes, Professor of Biology at the University of California, Berkeley. Hayes’ work examines the impact of chemical contaminants on environmental health and public health, with a specific focus on the role of pesticides in global amphibian declines and environmental justice concerns associated with targeted exposure of racial and ethnic minorities to endocrine disruptors and the role that exposure plays in health care disparities.
7:00 pm in the Theresa Lang Theatre. Seating is free, limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis; you do not need to RSVP.
