2016 Environmental Lecture and Luncheon: Public Health in a Dynamic Environment


Lynn Sherr and Dr. Margaret Hamburg face each other in discussion.

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? In the annual Environmental Lecture and Luncheon, Lynn Sherr of ABC News’ “20/20” and Museum Trustee and former Commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Dr. Margaret Hamburg explore the intersection of the environment and human health.

This conversation took place at the Museum on April 20, 2016.
