Dr. Heather Stapleton to speak this afternoon

Dr. Heather Stapleton, an ITEHP faculty member, will be giving a presentation this afternoon (Thursday, November 7) and 4:40PM in LSRC A247. The focus of her talk is on TSCA (Toxic Substances Control Act, 1976) while asking how well the system has worked to manage chemicals in commerce. She will be using flame retardant chemicals as an example of how TSCA has failed and will be exploring the potential fire safety benefits versus the health risks of such chemicals.
