Healthy Homes Speaker Series

The speaker series' purpose is to help develop a multimedia, multidisciplinary, and informal discussion to help improve, share, and address the issues surrounding environmental toxins in underrepresented populations as well as provide knowledge and insight on these environmental toxins to those within Loyola University. The goals of the speaker series will be to help raise awareness on emerging environmental toxins, demonstrate effective or new interventions for combating these toxins, show best practices on engaging communities and ultimately advance the notion of healthier homes and communities to the City/County, community groups, private industry, public health officials, and child advocates.

We will have 3-4 events throughout the Spring semester either at the Lake Shore, Water Tower, or Maywood Campuses. All of the Healthy Homes/Healthy Communities seminars will also be streaming LIVE via Adobe Connect.
