Coronavirus & our environment


To help make sense of the torrent of news, we're highlighting the most consequential of the dozens of stories we see every week.

We hope you find it a “port in the storm” of information drenching us now. 
All of us at Environmental Health Sciences wish you and your family peace and serenity in the New Year. THANK YOU to all who contributed to keep this newsletter free, vibrant and essential. We raised $38,000, coming within $2,000 of our largest fundraising goal ever.

We cannot drive good science into public discussion without you.

If you missed the year-end, you still have time. I want your voice.
– Douglas Fischer, executive director
I'm a supporter!
