Island Press, in partnership with the Security and Sustainability Forum, hosted a webinar featuring veteran journalist Carey Gillam, Research Director for the non-profit U.S. Right to Know and author of Whitewash: The Story of a Weed Killer, Cancer, and the Corruption of Science. On January 31 at 1:15 PM EST Carey was joined by Dr. Dana Barr, Environmental Health Professor at Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health for a conversation on the impacts of glyphosate on our food and health and how this research serves as a case study for the importance of scientific and journalistic rigor.
