Join us for the April After Hours lecture, where VIMS alum Don Axelrad will be sharing information on his post-graduate career researching and monitoring PFAS: a group of “forever chemicals” who have earned that name because they are nearly indestructible toxins that can cause major health problems in humans. Don will be describing his work on PFAS monitoring in Florida, where he currently resides; as well as promoting a discussion of what we should do about the issue and what new thinking we should consider when trying to mitigate the effects of PFAs and improve US toxics legislation.

Registration is required.

After Hours lectures are designed for an adult audience.

We are excited to offer this lecture in-person in McHugh Auditorium on VIMS' Gloucester Point Campus! This lecture will also be available as a live-streamed webinar. Registration is required for both in-person and webinar attendees. Webinar links will be sent in all registration confirmation emails. At this time, we are expecting a hybrid event, but registrants will be notified in advance if the event moves to a virtual only format.

This event will be photographed and/or videotaped. By attending this event, each participant consents to being photographed and/or videotaped and authorizes VIMS/William & Mary to use such photographs and videos for VIMS/W&M media purposes.
