What You Can Do Here and Now: Creating a Healthy Community
7:00 pm, May 6, 2003
 
LocalMotion invites you to the final lecture in an extraordinary four part series.
 
“What we need are practical solutions that can easily be woven into complicated lives.”
--Betsy Dance, Founder of LocalMotion
 
Previous lectures in this and the last two series have demonstrated the devastating effects toxic chemicals can have on human health, particularly the health of children.  The speakers, distinguished scientists and medical doctors, have also given us hope that solutions to the problems caused by harmful chemicals exist.  This panel discussion is designed to give you more of the answers you have been seeking.
