Webinar: Women and Mercury
Wednesday 17 June 2020 - 11:00am - Wednesday 17 June 2020 
NB Lung women and mercury

Women living and working in areas contaminated with mercury are exposed to this heavy metal from various sources, including from mercury-contaminated food. Serious health effects result from mercury poisoning, which harms women and their children, resulting in irreversible damage and often death.

Are there ways to address this problem? How can people find out that there is mercury exposure? What do we need to achieve at the policy level? What different actors can do to reduce the risk of mercury exposure on women?

HEJSupport webinar will bring together internationally recognized experts to share new approaches to minimizing mercury exposure. The webinar will start on June 17 at 11 a.m. Atlantic Time.
