Environmentally Unhealthy? Health and Environmental Implications of Proposed EPA Budget cuts.

The U.S. federal administration has proposed budget cuts of up to 31 percent to the Environmental Protection Agency. California, which receives more EPA funding than any other state, stands to lose significantly if these cuts are enacted. In the process, programs that protect both the environment and the health of millions of Americans may be in jeopardy. In this seminar, experts from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research and the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health will discuss implications of the proposed budget cuts at the national level and for California-based initiatives ranging from pollution mitigation around the Port of Los Angeles to preservation and protection efforts for the San Francisco Bay.

 

Moderated by Yifang Zhu, PhD, professor of the Department of Environmental Health Sciences, the panel will consist of Michael Jerrett, PhD, professor and chair of the Department of Environmental Health Sciences and director of Center for Occupational & Environmental Health, Ying-Ying Meng, DrPH, co-director of the Chronic Disease Program and a senior research scientist at the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, and Timothy Malloy, JD, professor in the UCLA School of Law and faculty director of the UCLA Sustainable Technology and Policy Program.

 

This seminar will be live streamed and is co-sponsored by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research and the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health.
