Toxic City: Lead Poisoning and Its Silent Attack on the Vulnerable
Hidden in decaying walls and aging infrastructure, lead is an insidious threat to the health of Brooklynites and citizens throughout New York City, especially children and communities that have been historically marginalized by structural inequalities. Dr. David Rosner, Co-Director of Columbia’s Center for the History & Ethics of Public Health, shares this tainted history and joins a conversation with staff lawyer at North Manhattan Improvement Corporation Matthew Chachère and Director of Lead Poisoning Prevention and Treatment at Montefiore Children’s Hospital Dr. Morri Markowitz about the efforts being made to treat illnesses caused by lead, to hold industrial interests accountable, and to secure the future of healthy communities in our city.
