Conservation Action Presents: Kortum Legacy Speaker Series. The Human Impact of Pollution with Dr. Devra Davis
We are thrilled to have Devra Davis, MPH, PhD, as the inaugural speaker in our Kortum Legacy Speaker Series.  Dr. Davis is a world renowned epidemiologist who confronts the public triumphs and private failures of her lifelong battle against environmental pollution.  Dr. Davis will be giving a talk on her National Book Award nominated book, When Smoke Ran Like Water: Tales of Environmental Deception and the Battle Against Pollution.  

In When Smoke Ran Like Water, she documents the shocking toll of a public-health disaster-300,000 deaths a year in the U.S. and Europe from the effects of pollution-and asks why we remain silent. Her talk will be preceded by a delicious lunch provided by Ceres Community Project, headquartered in Sebastopol.  

Dr. Davis is internationally known for work on disease prevention and environmental health factors. She served as the President Clinton appointee to the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board from 1994 to 1999, having won bipartisan Senate confirmation. She was Founding Director of the Center for Environmental Oncology, the first of its kind in the world, and presently acts as President of Environmental Health Trust, a non-profit organization focusing on drawing attention to man-made health threats. She lectures at American and European universities and her research has been covered in major scientific publications as well as being highlighted on major media outlets like CNN, CSPAN, CBC, BBC, and public radio.  

In recent years, her attention has become focused on the health hazards of exposures to man-made sources of electromagnetic radiation, especially those from wireless devices such as cell phones and iPads and the antennas and cell towers powering these devices, all of which emit radio-frequency/microwave radiation.
