Environmental MD Frumkin next Great Teachers lecturer

Diagnosing sick buildings, sending medical residents into cornfields to learn "agromedicine," diagnosing patients with lead exposure, teaching medical students to diagnose occupational asthma. These are some of the responsibilities of Emory environmental and occupational health expert Howard Frumkin.

Frumkin is the latest speaker in the Great Teachers Lecture Series. His lecture, "Green World, White Coat: The Links Between Human Health and the Environment," will be held Oct. 15 at 7:30 p.m. in Cannon Chapel.

Frumkin established both of Emory's programs in environmental health: the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health at the Rollins School, which he chairs, and the Environmental and Occupational Medicine program at Emory Healthcare, where he continues to direct the consultive clinic. He also founded Emory's occupational medicine residency, the only such physician-training program in Georgia.

A nationally recognized expert, Frumkin is often called upon to evaluate situations associated with possible environmental or occupational health threats, such as the Glynn County Superfund site in Brunswick, Ga., "cancer clusters" in industrial settings or carbon disulfide-related health problems among employees at a rayon plant near Mobile, Ala.

For more information about the Great Teachers Lecture Series, call 404-727-6216.
