We are pleased to invite you to join us for the last Public Health Speaker Series of the spring semester.
Together with the Washington University Climate Change Program (WUCCP) Speaker Series, Environmental Studies, and the Office of the Provost and WashU’s ten-year strategic vision, Here and Next, we are excited to welcome Sacoby Wilson from the College Park School of Public Health at the University of Maryland to the Clark-Fox Forum.
Wilson’s talk: "Bending the Arc Towards Justice: Transforming Public Health Through Community-Engaged Research and Practice" will describe how historic and contemporary discrimination and racism drives environmental, climate, and energy injustices and related health issues.
Sacoby Wilson is a Professor with the Maryland Institute for Applied Environmental Health and Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics in the University of Maryland, College Park School of Public Health where he directs the Center for Community Engagement, Environmental Justice and Health (CEEJH). He has over 20 years of experience as an environmental health scientist in the areas of exposure science, environmental justice, environmental health disparities, community-based participatory research, water quality analysis, air pollution studies, built environment, industrial animal production, climate change, community resiliency and sustainability. He works primarily in partnership with community-based organizations to study and address environmental justice and health issues and translate research to action.
