NC State’s Superfund Center for Environmental and Health Effects of PFAS invites you to a seminar with Arlene Blum, a biophysical chemist, author and mountaineer who has walked 2,000 miles across the Great Himalaya mountains of Bhutan, Nepal and India. In her talk, Blum will share her favorite images and dramatic stories of the beautiful and remote peaks she has climbed, as well as her scientific research and policy work to reduce the use of harmful chemicals for healthier people and planet.

Blum's scientific research and policy work with the Green Science Policy Institute protects human health and the global environment from toxic chemicals in everyday products.
