Join THRO live on Wednesday, November 16 at 3:00 p.m. ET for our annual Native American Heritage Month guest lecture. This year we’re focusing on NIH-funded environmental health research in Alaska with co-presenters Pamela Miller and Viola “Vi” Waghiyi, of the Alaska Community Action on Toxics (ACAT), who study exposures, endocrine effects, contaminants, and chemicals in two Yupik communities on St. Lawrence Island. The team aims to inform public health interventions and empower Alaska Natives to address health disparities in their communities. Visit THRO’s website for more information and updates.
