Dr. Samantha Rubright will discuss Fracking and Our Health: Is Oil and Gas the Modern Day Big Tobacco?
On a sadder note, our long time caterer until about 2 years ago, just passed away this week. Mabel Sawhill passed away at 103 and was a long time honorary member of One Health Academy cooking up delicious meals. For a good article on her written a year and a half ago, please click here.
More upcoming One Health events and previous recordings are also listed on our website here.
