Teresa Heinz—in collaboration with the Heinz Foundation and the Magee-Women’s Hospital of UMPC—sponsored a Women’s Health and the Environment Conference on Friday, April 20, at the David L. Lawrence Center in Pittsburgh. This annual conference has existed for the past decade in Boston, but just arrived in Pittsburgh for the first time this spring.
Speakers from around the country will speak about a variety of topics concerning environmental risks to women’s health, including Environmental Working Group’s vice president of research Jane Houlihan, who will host a presentation on safe cosmetics.
Several live-bloggers attended the conference earlier today. Check out their documentation of the event at Daily Kos, The Democratic Daily, and Democracy Cell Project.
