The event may be over, but you can still hear Dayna Scott's compelling presentation! A complete audio recording and powerpoint are available for download below.

Dayna Nadine Scott, co-director of the National Network on Environments and Women's Health, will discuss the environmental health effects of long-term, low-dose exposure to pollutants, with a focus on the Aamjiwnaang First Nation reserve near Sarnia, Ontario. This community, in the midst of Canada's largest petro-chemical complex, has seen a drastic decline in male newborns in recent years.

Scott is cross-appointed between York University’s law school and the Faculty of Environmental Studies. Her current research examines the way we talk about “endocrine disruption” from critical perspective. She completed a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at McGill’s Faculty of Law, and a Fulbright Fellowship at NYU Law School.
