Lead Wars: The Politics of Science and the Fate of America’s Children

Listen to Professors of Public Health David K. Rosner and Jerry Markovitz discuss the battle over lead poisoning, one of the most contentious and bitter battles in the history of public health, and how it illuminates the dilemmas faced by public health agencies today. How does the discovery that new synthetic toxins are disruptive at extremely low levels challenge public health’s traditional assumptions about how to protect the public? What are the obstacles faced by public health workers in a conservative, pro-business, anti-regulatory climate as they formulate prevention strategies for chronic illness linked to low levels of toxic exposure? How do we protect our children?

This event will be held at PicNic Cafe (2665 Broadway btw. 101st & 102nd Sts.), 212-222-8222.
