Fireside Chat: The John Merck Fund’s Ruth Hennig on Environment and Health in the Trump Administration

3-24-2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

What do you think the 2016 US Presidential election results mean for environmental health over the coming four years? What might be the impact on research funding and priorities? Chemical regulation? Children’s health? Community health?

On this call Michael Lerner, PhD, President of Commonweal, and Ruth Hennig, MS, Executive Director of The John Merck Fund will discuss the implications of the recent US election results for the field of environmental health. Following the discussion between Michael and Ms. Hennig, we will open the call for a conversation with participants

This call is the third in our new “Fireside Chat” series. We are exploring the challenges and opportunities for environmental health under the new Trump Administration. Our focus will be a conversation between CHE leaders, environmental health science and policy experts, and call participants. Our last call with Dr. Shelley Hearne is now available on our site. Look for a new call each month!
