Join us for this thought-provoking and inspirational lecture series as we explore current issues of human health and the environment. In November, Siddhartha Roy, Virginia Tech Scientist on the Flint Water Crisis and Leeanne Walters, Citizen Scientist and Water Activist, present Ethics Lessons from the Flint Water Crisis. A Flint resident and Virginia Tech scientist describe their experiences living through the Flint Water Crisis and what transpired to allow this modern tragedy to unfold. Discover how a group of citizens, activists, and scientists using citizen science, laboratory experiments, field sampling, investigative journalism and social media brought the events to light, including an emergency declaration by President Obama. Speakers will offer ethical lessons to empower our citizenry and professionals when similar disasters occur in the future.A reception will be held at 6:30 pm followed by the lecture at 7 pm.
Living Ethics is presented by the Bon Secours Virginia Health System and the Science Museum of Virginia.
