CHE Alaska call: Toxic Chemicals that Disrupt Hormones: Impacts to Fish and People

Aug 24, 2011


Date: Wednesday, August 24, 2011, 9:00 am Alaska Time / 10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern

RSVP: To join this free call and receive the dial-up instructions, please RSVP to Alaska Community Action on Toxics at diana@akaction.org or (907) 222-7714.

Description: A one hour discussion with environmental biologist Dr. Frances Solomon about endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDC). Dr. Solomon will discuss the toxic properties of EDCs, exposure pathways for fish and humans with a focus on routes of exposure for people living in the Arctic, why young humans and juvenile fish are more vulnerable to the toxic effects of EDCs, and how you can reduce your exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals. We will also discuss the specific impacts of two groups of EDCs -- phthalates and perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) and proposed regulatory reform including
the Safe Chemicals Act of 2011 and the Safe Cosmetics Act of 2011.

Speaker:
Dr. Frances Solomon is an environmental biologist with a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Rochester (Rochester, New York), and a master’s degree in environmental health and a Ph.D. in fisheries from the University of Washington (Seattle, Washington). She has 25 years of experience in environmental agencies, focusing on the biological impacts of toxic water pollutants, pollution prevention and control, and cleanup of contaminated sites.

Dr. Solomon is passionate about bringing her work experience and knowledge to the classroom. She teaches short courses and gives lectures for environmental professionals, health care professionals, and the general public in Washington State, Alaska, and Canada about impacts of metals and persistent organic pollutants, including endocrine disruptor chemicals (EDCs), on aquatic ecosystems and human health. She teaches environmental pollution courses at Western Washington University and The Evergreen State College, Tacoma. She has also taught at University of Washington Tacoma, University of British Columbia, and Northwest University in Xi’an, China.
