What: Dr. Maureen Lichtveld, chair of the Department of Global Environmental Health Sciences at Tulane University, is conducting a public seminar titled “The Intergenerational Impact of Chemical and Non-Chemical Stressors on Maternal and Child Health: What Does It Have to do With You?” In this seminar, Dr. Lichtveld will examine cumulative risks associated with exposures to environmental chemical contaminants and non-chemical stressors such as stress and violence on birth outcomes and infant development. She will present information from her work dealing with acute stressor situations including natural and technological disasters and chronic conditions such as health disparities, both of which may result in life-time adversity for those affected. Dr. Lichtveld will emphasize community-based, participatory research strategies and approaches to research translation and dissemination.
