Presentation Overview:

In this webinar, we will hear from San Francisco physician Dr. Jane Hightower, who has been extremely instrumental in bringing national attention to how mercury affects our health. More than 10 years ago, Dr. Hightower began recognizing low-level mercury poisoning in patients who regularly ate certain kinds of fish. She delved deeper into the issues of competing interests, varying government standards, and looked at what it would take get mercury poisoning seen as a problem. She has lectured on this topic extensively across the country, her articles have appeared in several scientific and medical journals including Environmental Health Perspectives and San Francisco Medicine, and has written a book Diagnosis: Mercury: Money, Politics and Poison.

Today, Dr. Hightower will lead a discussion about mercury exposure and human health - a view from the trenches. She will present a 30 minute talk to be followed by 30 minutes for Q&A and comments from the participants. Please join us for a very informative and engaging discussion.
