Lecture Presented by Sharyle Patton

Director of the Health and Environment Program at Commonwealth

 

Wednesday, March 23, 2011 at 4:30 PM (Reception to Follow)

Alexander Library, 4th FL Lecture Hall

 

The Centers for Disease Control/NHANES human biomonitoring study tells us that we all carry in our bodies dozens of environmental chemicals. Sharyle Patton will provide an overview of the relevance of biomonitoring results as a public health tool, discuss why we should be concerned about concentrations of environmental chemicals in all our bodies and present case studies using data from  NHANES and other biomonitoring studies to illustrate data use and results communication.

 

Sharyle Patton is the director the Health and Environment Program for Commonweal in Bolinas, California. She also directs the Commonweal Biomonitoring Resource Center, a program that helps geographical and non-geographical communities learn more about the tool of biomonitoring. She was a co-founder and served as the Northern Co-Chair of the International Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) Network, a network of over 300 public-interest groups around the globe who are active in UN negotiations dealing with toxic chemical regulation. In addition, Patton serves on the board of the Barbara Smith Fund, Greenpeace US and the board of The Endocrine Disrupter Exchange.  Please join us for this fascinating lecture!

The Space of Democracy and the Democracy of Space network focuses on how people are connected with and responsible to those who live in distant places. Recent examples are abundant: from climate change to global human rights, from Iraq to Afghanistan. With all this emphasis upon spatial connections and ethical responsibilities to others, how are we to understand, and then go on to constitute new spaces of democracy today. The Space of Democracy network explores the dominant forces and personalities shaping how we answer this question.
