    Environmental Justice — Free Lecture at Mary Baldwin
    January 28, 7 p.m.
    Francis Auditorium, Pearce Science Center
    It is often argued that poor and minority persons are more likely than others to be subjected to toxic pollutants that are injurious to their health, and many reasons for this state of affairs have been proposed. This talk by nationally recognized expert and scholar Janet Currie focuses on environmental justice for women and infants, and asks how maternal responses to environmental policy affect potential exposure to hazardous substances. More info: 540-887-7009.

    Currie is the Henry Putnam Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at Princeton and director of its Center for Health and Wellbeing. Her research focuses on the health and well-being of children, in particular on socioeconomic differences in child health and on environmental threats to children’s health.
