Description

Joel Schwartz, PhD from the Harvard School of Public Health will speak on "Is Public Health part of the Epidemiologist's Job? From Epidemiology to Policy."

Dr. Schwartz’s research has focused on the health consequences of exposure to pollutants, including the health effects of lead and the health effects of air pollutants. He has recently also begun work looking at water contamination.
 
In lead, Dr. Schwartz has examined cardiovascular effects of lead exposure in adults, cognitive effects in children, auditory effects in children, and effects of lead on children’s growth. He has also done work on sources of lead exposure, including establishing gasoline lead as the major source of lead exposure in the United States.
