From Silent Spring to Silent Night
Dr. Tyrone Hayes speaks in NC, March 7th & 8th!

I've only ever seen Dr. Tyrone Hayes speak once, but it left an impression. What a smart, well spoken, impassioned, and all around cool guy! What important work he's doing, and what a horrible and fantastic story he has to tell about corporate influence over science!

I'm thrilled to be heading up the team that's bring Dr. Hayes to speak in North Carolina week after next. He'll be giving a presentation titled From Silent Spring to Silent Night: Pesticides, the link between amphibian declines and cancer, and what you should know on the campus of NC Central University on Thursday, March 8th at 7 PM. That morning, he will also be speaking to an audience of Durham middle and high school students at NCCU. It's not too late to register to attend either presentation, so get on it! It's also not to late to register for the webcast: both the morning and the evening presentations will be available by webcast free for about a week after they go up live. This is a great opportunity for classes, church groups, organizations, or anyone concerned about public health and the environment in North Carolina to see Dr. Hayes speak, even if you're too far away to make the trip to Durham!

Please plan to join us, in person or over the Internet, for what promises to be a wonderful and inspiring presentation! Register today at Thank you!
