Event Details

Please join us to hear Dr. Sarah Evans speak about potential health risks from exposure to indoor and outdoor air contaminants and what we can do to protect ourselves and advocate for effective public health policies. Patrice Gillespie, a founding member of Wilton Go Green, Wilton native, and long-time advocate for clean air and environmental sustainability, will tie the lessons from Dr. Evans’ talk to Wilton’s no-idling policies.

Sarah F. Evans, PhD, MPH, is Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health and a member of the Institute for Exposomic Research at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Exposomics is a field of science that examines how environmental chemicals interact with physical, biological, and social factors to determine health outcomes. Dr. Evans’ research is focused on the impacts of early life environmental exposures on nervous system development and child behavior. She is a trusted voice on the health effects of toxic chemicals and what individuals can do to protect their own health as well as how to advocate for healthier policies in their local communities. She obtained her doctorate in neuroscience from Weill Cornell Medical College and her Master’s in Public Health from Mount Sinai, where she also completed a three-year fellowship in environmental pediatrics.
