Empowering Communities: Part 3 
Environmental Exposures and the Links to Reproductive Health

Latest scientific findings have linked many environmental exposures to reproductive health, including air pollution and endocrine disrupting chemicals, just to name a few.  As part of WHE's maternal and child health programming, we are pleased to bring Dr. Marya Zlatnik, MD, MMS to Pittsburgh to speak about these connections between environmental toxins and reproductive health.

Dr. Zlatnik is Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology, & Reproductive Sciences at UCSF, and a Maternal Fetal Medicine specialist, with clinical expertise in ultrasound and the diagnosis of fetal anomalies.  She has a long-standing interest in environmental toxins and their effect on pregnancy.  She is a member of UCSF's Program in Reproductive Health and the Environment (PRHE), as well as the associate director of UCSF's fellowship in Maternal Fetal Medicine.  In 2014, she joined the University of California San Francisco's Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit (UCSF PEHSU) as Associate Director, Maternal Fetal Health and the Environment Program.  

7 - 9 p.m.  (doors open 6:30) at the Carnegie Science Center's Science Stage (One Allegheny Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15212).  This is the first of a three-part series.  Register online for one ($10) or all three ($25) events.
