NIEHS PEPH E-Waste and Environmental Health webinar

Description: In this webinar, we will hear presentations about NIEHS-funded work at two e-waste sites, one in Guiyu, China and another in Accra, Ghana. Aimin Chen, M.D., Ph.D., of the University of Cincinnati investigated the developmental effects of e-waste toxicant mixtures and provided human study evidence to inform regulatory actions and public health prevention in Guiyu. Stephani Kim, Ph.D., who is now a fellow at NIEHS, collaborated with Dr. Chen and will speak from the perspective of working with the community. Julius Fobil, Dr.P.H., of the University of Ghana studies the risks at the Agbogbloshie e-waste site in Accra to inform evidence-based implementation and policy options. He will discuss his work on building trust at the site and getting buy-in from tribal chiefs before and during the study.
