NOTED ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS EXPERT TO HEADLINE “SCHOLAR HISTORY NIGHT”


3/1/2005

Environmental pollution can have a direct and dramatic impact on people’s health. Dr. Devra Davis, director of the Environmental Oncology Center at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, will address those issues as keynote speaker at La Roche College’s fourth annual Scholar History Night on Tuesday, March 8. Davis is the author of When Smoke Ran Like Water: Tales of Environmental Deception and the Battle Against Pollution". She is a former Scholar in Residence at the National Academy of Sciences and was a member of the National Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board under President Clinton. One of the case studies in her book centers on the smog in her hometown of Donora, PA that killed 20 people in October 1948.

The host for the event is Dr. Charles Stacey, a resident of Donora, PA, during the killer smog. The program will also include a panel comprised of members of the La Roche History Club. At the conclusion of the presentation, Davis will hold a book signing.

Scholar History Night will be held from 7:00-9:30 p.m. in room 103 of the College’s Palumbo Science Center, located on the East Campus. For more information about the event, contact Sr. Sally Witt, director of community outreach, at witts1@laroche.edu or 412-536-1286.
