On December 3, 2010 doctors, politicians and organizers will gather in Monterey to discuss the effects of children’s development and reproductive health, the economics of environmentalism, and the local (and global) policies which govern and affect health outcomes.

The event is free and open to the public and will be held in the Irvine Auditorium from 1-4pm.


Tracey Woodruff, PhD, MPH and the director of the Program on Reproductive Health and the Environment at UC San Francisco will present the latest research linking the impacts of environmental contaminants on reproductive and developmental health.

MIIS professor Jason Scorse, Chair of the International Environmental Policy Department and author of What Environmentalists Need to Know About Economics, will share his ideas about how environmental policy and economics can work together to create solutions for the complex problems facing our global community, markets and natural resources.

Assembly member Bill Monning, will speak about his present and future work in the California State Assembly and on the Central Coast to protect public health by creating competent environmental policy, including stopping the registration of new cancer-causing pesticides.

A free reception will follow the presentations and guests are invited to meet local and statewide organizers working to protect health and the environment, as well as local holistic health practitioners offering solutions to improving health naturally.
