There are a tremendous number of factors driving change in our environment. From climate change to international trade and travel to industrial pollution, humans are altering the local and global ecosystems, with unexpected and unprecedented effects on our health. What are the effects we are already seeing, and how can we prepare for what’s to come? How can public health policies and individual action help keep us healthy and thriving in the 21st century?

On Wednesday, April 20, the American Museum of Natural History will host its 26th Annual Spring Environmental Lecture and Luncheon.

This year’s topic, Thriving in a Dynamic Environment—A New Vision for Public Health, will explore the intersection of the environment and human health in a conversation between Lynn Sherr of ABC News’ “20/20” and Museum Trustee and former Commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Dr. Margaret Hamburg. Following the program, guests may continue the conversation at their leisure while mingling with friends in the iconic Milstein Hall of Ocean Life.

With an established tradition of education and outreach, the Annual Spring Environmental Lecture and Luncheon brings the latest information on important current issues. One of the Museum’s most successful and widely anticipated annual events, it showcases the Museum’s commitment to environmental research, education, and conservation.
