The Water We Drink: The importance of Environmental Health Sciences
The national spotlight on the water crisis in Flint, Michigan is reminding the American consciousness that access to the basic human right of clean water is still a modern problem, both internationally AND domestically. Join our Environmental Health Sciences faculty, on Friday, February 5th at 2 p.m. (EST), as they discuss how exposures to toxins in water impact communities around the world- from lead in cases like Flint to cadmium in cases like Thailand. This virtual session will start with a faculty presentation about toxic metal exposure in drinking water, including case study examples, and conclude with a brief Q & A session (registration is required).
Come see how the University of Michigan School of Public Health is a leader in the field and how a Masters of Public Health in Environmental Health Sciences is your opportunity to do a world of good.
Please note that this session is not a commentary on events surrounding the Flint Water Crisis, but rather a scientific view of how exposure to toxins in drinking water supplies impact child development and communities around the world.
