Speakers Bureau

Office of Science Education & Diversity

Welcome to the Speakers Bureau!

Do you need a speaker for your school or community group? How about a judge for your upcoming science fair, festival, or camp?

Our scientists are available to come talk about a variety of topics involving your environment and your health. Topics range from asthma and mold — to cancer and air pollution. NIEHS scientists, technicians, and administrators are also available to talk about their job responsibilities, as well as their educational and career experiences. Our speakers can travel up to 50 miles from our campus in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, Monday through Friday.

Please select a topic or speaker below and submit your request. Please allow at least four weeks to make arrangements. We look forward to working with you!

This is a free service provided by the NIEHS.
