Toxic Hot Seat : Tuesday July 22nd at 5:30pm in UWB2 005
Karen Bowman, MN, RN, COHN-S (Karen Bowmen & Associates) would like to invite interested students, faculty, and staff to the Washington Tour of "Toxic Hot Seat" showing Tuesday July 22nd at 5:30pm in UWB2 005. This is a documentary about political and citizen advocacy, stunning industry shenanigans and lies and deceit regarding a shadowing campaign to expose us to ineffective and toxic flame retardants.
The documentary follows legislators, mothers, firefighters, scientists and journalists as they uncover 40 years of deceit. This film is for policy buffs, journalists, healthcare providers, advocates and all citizens interested in learning about the toxic flame retardant in their home furniture and children's products like carriers, car seats, nursing pillow, changing pad and nap mats. These flame retardants are linked to a host of negative health effects. The film was directed by James Redford and Kirby Walker.
This documentary is hosted by the Nursing and Health Studies Dept – BNURS 409 Partnerships in Community Health and sponsored by the Washington State Nurses Association, Planned Parenthood and Washington Toxics Coalition.
