2009 Rachel Carson Legacy Conference
September 3, 2009, 8:25 am
Filed under: Education and Grant Opportunities, Events

Friday September 25, 2009
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
at the Bidwell Training Center, 1815 Metropolitan Street
Sponsor: The Rachel Carson Homestead Association
The conference theme is “When Chemicals Disrupt: Managing Our Risks.” This conference will address the dichotomy between critical protection of the environment (and our bodies and those of the next generations) from endocrine disrupting contaminants and the unbridled economic interest of those who produce substances which directly or indirectly act as endocrine or developmental disruptors. We seek an open dialogue with the objective of identifying a set of mechanisms that can have rapid effect on the control of endocrine disrupting substances flowing into the environment as bio-accumulating contaminants. Mounting scientific evidence on a global scale compels immediate and effective action. However, there is widespread disagreement on the best course of action, and in particular, on the role of regulation in accomplishing change. The conference will approach the topic of endocrine disruptors in three parts: policy, science and remedies. Speakers to date include Linda Birnbaum, PhD, MPH; Terry Collins, Ken Cook and many others.
Price: $90; preregistration and prepayment is required
