Public Event | Breast Cancer and the Environment: What Do We Know and How Can We Reduce Exposures?


Concerned about the impact the environment has on breast cancer risk? This webinar will review what science tells us about the role of environmental chemicals in breast cancer, including endocrine-disrupting chemicals that interfere with the way the body’s hormones work.

With a focus on homes and communities, our speaker will also discuss steps people can take to reduce exposures of concern.

The upcoming speaker series kicks off at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 7, and will be presented by Robin E. Dodson, ScD.

Dodson is an exposure scientist at Silent Spring Institute, a mission-driven scientific research organization dedicated to uncovering the environmental causes of breast cancer. Her research focuses on exposures in the indoor environment in three main areas—developing novel exposure measurements for epidemiological and community-based studies, analysis of environmental exposure data, and intervention studies aimed at reducing chemical exposures. Dodson also holds an appointment as an Assistant Adjunct Professor at Boston University School of Public Health and as a Visiting Scientist at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
