Time and Date: May 9, 2018 11:00 AM in Pacific Time (US and Canada)
: Join us on May 9, 2018 at 11am PDT / 2pm EDT to learn about the latest science on health impacts of EMF exposure and possibilities for policy change. Dr. Frank Barnes, Distinguished Professor in the Biomedical Group of the Department of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering at the University of Colorado, will provide some of the current state of the science on how weak electric and magnetic fields can modify biological systems and the growth of cancer cells. Dr. De-Kun Li, Senior Research Scientist at the Division of Research, Kaiser Permanente Northern California and reproductive and perinatal epidemiologist, will present his team’s December 2017 study, Exposure to Magnetic Field Non-Ionizing Radiation and the Risk of Miscarriage: A Prospective Cohort Study. Dr. Joel Moskowitz, Director of the Center for Family and Community Health at the School of Public Health at UC Berkeley, will discuss policy-related developments, including his experience suing the California Department of Public Health in 2016 for not releasing a cell phone radiation fact sheet first developed in 2009.
