Healthy People, Healthy Planet 3-part lecture taped for University of Delaware Nursing School Course
GBPSR's Dr. Dick Clapp and speaker Jill Stein MD at Boston University Medical School taping of Healthy People, Healthy Planet for University of Delaware Nursing School course.
Dr. Jill Stein's recently taped 3-part, 1-1/2 hour lecture for a University of Delaware Nursing School course titled Healthy People, Healthy Planet, is now available for download on Boston University's Superfund Reserch Program website. It also can be streamed as Flash files on the BUSRP website.
The 3-part lecture, recorded remotely by the University of Delaware School of Nursing in December 2009, was arranged by the Boston University Superfund Basic Research Project (BUSBRP). GBPSR serves on its outreach advisory committee.
The presentations cover the environmental drivers of climate change and chronic disease, as well as cross cutting solutions, and are based on GBPSR's recent report Environmental Threats to Healthy Aging. GBPSR is currently working on a speaker package to be released in early 2010 that include slides, notes and references to enable others to present on this topic.
