Join Us in Discussing the Health Effects of Toxic Chemicals!

February 17, 2011
Portland, Oregon

Please join Maye Thompson, RN, PhD, Environmental Health Program Director for Oregon PSR, and Jenny Holmes from Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon as they host a “Mindful Living" gathering to discuss the harmful effects of toxic chemicals on human health and development.

When: Thursday, February 17th, 2011 from 6:30-8:30pm

Where: Youth Room at the Mount Tabor Presbyterian Church, 5441 SE Belmont Street in Portland

Clean air, water and soil are the necessary elements that keep the interdependent web of life on Earth healthy and thriving. When toxic chemicals contaminate our environment and our bodies, the impacts can be devastating. Over the past decade, new scientific findings show that low, chronic, ambient doses of toxic chemicals are linked to cancer, obesity, infertility, autism and many other diseases. Many of these toxic chemicals are found in everyday products such as plastic, furniture, personal care products, toys and other consumer products.

In this gathering we will learn more about environmental health, explore theological connections to the issue, discuss chemicals of concern, and share ideas for a healthier and safer world. For more information and to RSVP for this event, please call Maye Thompson at 503-274-2720 or email maye@oregonpsr.org.
