2010 seminar 1Waiter, There’s a Phthalate in My Soup: Science and Impacts of Toxic Chemicals
March 31 – April 1, 2010
Brown University

With growing public awareness of toxic exposures in the air, water and ground around us, journalists must bridge the gap between science and public perception. The subtle caveats of environmental toxicology can be lost in translation, leaving news audiences confused and regulators and scientists frustrated.

Metcalf Institute and Brown University Superfund Research Program offered a two-day seminar for journalists featuring leading environmental scientists and writers. Participants visited research labs and discussed case studies on the communication of bisphenol-A and air quality impacts.
