TEDX partnered with other nonprofits to host webinars with scientists conducting endocrine disruption research. We also produced videos and participated in webinars hosted by other organizations.
Watch TEDX's final webinar, celebrating 16 years of championing safe environments for healthy hormone functioning. Hear stories about our successes, listen to expert opinions about what’s next for EDCs and fracking chemicals, and learn how to stay connected to the latest resources. Visit the Collaborative on Health and the Environment to learn more about the presentations and the speakers, download the slides and watch the recording of the webinar.
Webinar series: EDC Science Briefs
