Rachel Carson: A Pioneer for Science-based Policy Connecting Environment and Health

September 20 @ 6:00 PM - 7:15 PM

University of Pittsburgh School of Public Health Lecture

PA IPL’s Patricia DeMarco, PhD (Senior Scholar, Chatham University) will be giving a lecture, “Rachel Carson: A Pioneer for Science-based Policy Connecting Environment and Health,” on September 20th!

Born in Allegheny County, pioneering naturalist Rachel Carson (1907-1964) used her knowledge of science and her early understanding of the interconnectedness of all living things to advocate for policy based on science. We must adjust our ways of interacting with the Earth and each other to align more closely to accommodate the laws of chemistry, physics, physiology, and ecology. Dr. DeMarco is the author of Pathways to Our Sustainable Future – A Global Perspective from Pittsburgh (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2017).

This lecture is free and open to public. Please email cfreynoldsmhs@gmail.com to receive the Zoom link.
