Annual Spring Dinner and Speaker

May 18, 2017: 6-8:30 PM at the Portland Golf Club

Join us at the beautiful Portland Golf Club again this year where we will have a festive evening of camaraderie, good food, and be entertained and enlightened by Professor Chensheng (Alex) Lu, PhD, Associate Professor of Environmental Exposure Biology.  Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. He will be speaking about his work around the global disappearance of the honeybee, entitled "The Role of the Honeybees (Apis mellifera) in Understanding the Toxicity of Sub-lethal Pesticide Exposure in Humans".

 

The disappearance of massive numbers of honeybees worldwide has raised the concern of losing the important pollinators and its implication to the food supplies. In his presentation, Professor Chensheng will discuss the onset of honeybee losses in 2006, the scientific evidence of its link to a popular group of insecticides, the global public policy implementation to address this ecological crisis, and its link to human health.
