Lauren Anderson will examine the relationships between nature and health during an address on Hanover College’s campus. The appearance, open to the public, free of charge, will be held Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 4 p.m. in Science Center, room 137.
Anderson is the program manager at the Institute for Healthy Air, Water and Soil and marketing and communication project manager at the University of Louisville School of Medicine’s Christina Lee Brown Envirome Institute.
The Institute for Healthy Air, Water and Soil seeks to develop integrated knowledge of the relationships between human health and the environment through a model of multidimensional health. The Christina Lee Brown Envirome Institute, meanwhile, conducts collaborative research to better understand the connections between our health, environment and choices.
Together, the entities incorporate community engagement and citizen science using Louisville, Ky., as an
“urban laboratory” to introduce a new approach to environmental health research.
The event is sponsored by the Hanover Class of 1965 Endowed Lectureship Series and hosted by the Hanover College Environmental Stewardship Committee.
