Description: Join us on Zoom for a fall seminar questioning the prevailing view that maternal drinking alone contributes to Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASDs). Michael Golding, Associate Professor in the Department of Veterinary Physiology at Texas A&M University, researches the interface between pregnancy and epigenetics, trying to understand how environmental exposures before conception or early in development cause disease later in life. Currently, he investigates how male drinking, prior to conception, contributes to the development of alcohol-induced birth defects and disease.

“No Defense: The U.S. Military’s War on Water”
Description: “No Defense” is a documentary that tells the story of the Americans who are fighting against one of the largest-known polluters in the country — the United States military. For decades, it's been documented that a category of chemicals known as PFAS are harmful to life by contaminating drinking water and surface water, yet the military continues to mandate its use at hundreds of sites across the country, with no plan in place to clean it up. Instead, the DOD is pressuring regulators to keep this toxin legal.
This documentary will be available for screening August 12-22, 2021.
Sponsored by: Great Lakes PFAS Action Network; We the People of Detroit; Great Lakes Now (Detroit Public Television); Michigan Center on Lifestage Environmental Exposures and Disease (M-LEEaD).
