Educational Forum: Today's Fossil Fuels and the Future of our Children's Health
"Hear no evil, see no evil, there is no evil"
Putting our heads in the sand, ignoring all the bad news about climate change won't make it go away; especially when it comes to learning more about what may negatively impact our most precious and most vulnerable of populations, our children.
Armed with the facts, each of us can and MUST be part of the solution, especially when it comes to our kids, their health and their future. This forum presents a dynamic and unique opportunity to learn about cutting edge science that brings us not just knowledge but hope; the hope of curing diseases we didn't know were curable and preventing those we didn't know we could prevent.
The forum is organized around three topics:
The Science - state of the art research showing multi-generational impacts on health from conception on into adulthood.
The Mothers' Voices - representing different communities from around the country, and their struggles for change.
The Policies - the status of change from the perspective of federal, state and local laws to move toward sustainable solutions.
Each topic will begin with an introductory statement by each panelist followed by audience participation.
This is a dynamic and unique opportunity to hear from mothers on the front lines, cutting edge scientists and innovative policy makers; making their voices heard. Learn how both their failures and their successes are shaping the present and will inform future policies that will create change.
