February 16, 2023
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Allan Rosenfield Building, 722 W. 168 St., New York, NY 10032 1102

Full title: The Global PFAS 'Forever Chemical' Public Health Threat: How We Got Here and Where We are Headed

Robert Bilott, JD will discuss the scientific, regulatory, and legal history of our discovery of the worldwide threat to human health and the environment posed by man-made PFAS 'forever chemicals', along with how this threat was covered up from the scientific community, regulators, lawmakers, and the public for decades, and what actions were necessary to reveal the truth and spur steps to begin protecting the public and the environment.

Mr. Bilott is an environmental attorney who is well known for leading a class action lawsuit against DuPont for their dumping of the hazardous chemical perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in a West Virginia town for decades. The 2019 film, 'Dark Waters' is based on this story. He also tells his story firsthand in his book titled, "Exposure: Poisoned Water, Corporate Greed, and One Lawyer's Twenty-Year Battle Against DuPont."
