Household toxins presentation demonstrates how I translated complex and difficult scientific and medical information into text for a presentation on common household poisons. I prepared and presented the talk to colleagues at the Pacific Forestry Centre in 2009.
At the time, the media in Canada were publishing news updates about bisphenyl A and the federal government’s recent ban on the use of the chemical in baby bottles and baby-food containers. I had attended a number of science-writing conferences where researchers had presented information on these chemicals and their effects on human health. The Pacific Forestry Centre’s Women’s Network asked me to share what I had learned, as part of the network’s lunchtime presentation series.
The PDF contains the presentation’s poster and my Powerpoint slides and notes.
