Master Chats: Emerging Contaminants and Freshwater Resources
April 17, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
The UWM Alumni Association’s Master Chats Series presents Emerging Contaminants and Freshwater Resources.
This event will feature Rebecca Klaper, professor at UWM’s School of Freshwater Sciences.
Pharmaceuticals, personal care products and other emerging contaminants find their way into freshwater systems around the world after use. Several of these chemicals have been found to be linked to potential impacts on the health of organisms in those ecosystems. This talk will discuss the potential impacts to the environment, the link to human health and ways in which these issues may be addressed.
