Miller Center Colloquium Panels: The Politics of Science and the Fate of America's Children
Miller Center, 2201 Old Ivy Road, Charlottesville VA 22904
Two panels will kick off the Miller Center’s colloquium series about historical perspectives on the health care crisis. The panels will focus on lessons learned in one of the bitterest battles in the history of public health research: a lead-paint abatement study conducted on inner-city children in Baltimore in the 1990s. Organized around GERALD MARKOWITZ and DAVID ROSNER’s Lead Wars: The Politics of Science and the Fate of America's Children, the panels will include leading historians, medical ethicists, and public health researchers, as well as U.S. SENATOR SHELDON WHITEHOUSE of Rhode Island. To attend the lunch between the two panels, please RSVP by noon on Wednesday, October 2 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
