Webinar: Agents of Change: Amplifying voices of future leaders in environmental health and justice
Thursday 30 July 2020 - 02:00pm - Thursday 30 July 2020 
Agents of Change

The face of science is changing. Increased diversity within the world of environmental health research is spurring the innovative ideas and solutions to push our planet forward in a healthy, more just direction.

The George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health has partnered with Environmental Health News to provide a space for the environmental health leaders of tomorrow to explore the intersection of research, health, diversity and justice.

"Agents of Change" is an ongoing series featuring the stories, analyses and perspectives of next generation environmental health leaders who come from historically under-represented backgrounds in science and academia.

During this webinar, Dr. Ami Zota, the founder and director of Agents of Change, will facilitate a Q&A discussion with four of the fellows who participated in the program this year to discuss their ongoing research, activism, and experiences with publishing their ideas in the public sphere. Fellows Brianna VanNoy, MPH, Ashley Gripper, Deniss Martinez, MS, and Max Aung, MPH, have published articles in, focused on prioritizing inclusion in environmental health, food sovereignty, the ecology of indigenous cultural fire practices, and balancing energy needs with community health. This will be the first of two webinars covering the Agents of Change fellowship.

This webinar will be moderated by Karen Wang, PhD, director of CHE. It will last for 70 minutes and will be recorded for our call and webinar archive.
