Policy & Advocacy Workgroup Call: Discussion on Toxics & Chemical Policy

June 21, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

We are thrilled to have Richard Denison, PhD, Senior Scientist with the Environmental Defense Fund, join us on our upcoming call. He will be telling us about the approach recently released by the EPA addressing the first 10 chemicals being assessed in the new Toxic Substances Control Act. This approach would ignore significant sources of pollution and could have serious, negative impacts on public health.

Dr. Denison will be giving us the details of what they are proposing and then we’ll have a discussion of how nurses can engage on this issue. This should be a great call – hope you can join us!!
