Mini Symposium Series: Environment, Health & Policy w/ Rep. Debbie Dingell

2:00 PM

Join us to launch the evolution of the NeuroNetwork for Emerging Therapies Mini Symposium Series.  This event will feature a discussion between U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell and Dr. Eva Feldman, followed by a live Q&A with Drs. Bhramar Mukherjee, Chair of Biostatistics, and Barry Rabe, J. Ira and Nicki Harris Family Professor of Public Policy.

The evolution of our Mini Symposium Series—a 2.0, if you will—features discussions between Dr. Eva Feldman and special guests on various topics that intersect with health, particularly neurology.

Rep. Debbie Dingell is our very special first guest. She will sit down with Dr. Feldman to discuss the intersection of environment, health, and public policy. They will address such questions as:

  • Why is environmental health vital for people in the state of Michigan?
  • What can public policy do to protect against pollutants like PFAS?
  • How can we shape more equitable environmental and health protections?
  • Much more.

Afterward, Dr. Feldman will be joined by two distinguished panelists, Drs. Bhramar Mukherjee, John D. Kalbfleisch Distinguished University Professor and Chair of Biostatistics, and Barry Rabe, J. Ira and Nicki Harris Family Professor of Public Policy and Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Environmental Policy, for a live Q & A. Remember to submit your questions when you register!

This will surely be an event you won't want to miss!
