Monsanto L.E.A.D. (Leaders Engaged in Advancing the Dialogue) Presents: Extra, Extra! Learn All About It! — A Physician’s Perspective on Pesticides and Health | 3 – 4 p.m. EDT | Wednesday, July 11, 2018 | REGISTER HERE
Have you ever wondered about the long-term effects of pesticide residues in your food? Top-selling media make scary claims about pesticides and agriculture — often without explaining research to support the claims.

During this webinar, Liza Dunn, physician and medical toxicologist, will dive deep into this topic, reviewing the research behind some of the claims and providing a better understanding of how pesticides are regulated.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this session, food and nutrition professionals will be better able to:

    • Understand the independent research studying long-term effects of pesticides on food.
    • Discuss how pesticides are regulated.


Learning Needs Codes: 1070, 4070, 8018 | Practice Competencies: 4.1.2, 4.2.2, 6.3.7
This session is pending approval for 1 hour of continuing education credit.
“Extra, Extra! Learn All About It! — A Physician’s Perspective on Pesticides and Health,” is the third in a series of webinars focused on current issues in food and farming. Please stay tuned for additional topics and dates added in the coming months.
Presenter Bio:

Liza Dunn (Halcomb) is a physician and medical toxicologist with a long-standing interest in global health. After completing her toxicology fellowship at NYU in 2006, Dr. Dunn returned to Washington University in St. Louis and started an ACGME accredited fellowship in medical toxicology.

Over the following ten years, Dr. Dunn became increasingly involved with global health and humanitarian relief projects. She organized a relief mission to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, started the scholar track in global health for the Washington University Division of Emergency Medicine, and is one of the Global Health Scholars for the Department of Internal Medicine.

As an adjunct professor in the Department of Anthropology, Dr. Dunn taught a course entitled “Medicine East and West” that compared the medical system in the USA with the medical system in China. This was a foundation course that established an exchange program for pre-medical students from Washington University to spend a semester at Fudan University in Shanghai, China.

In July of 2016, Dr. Dunn started working as the Medical Outreach Lead for Monsanto, a global seed company with innovative technology that has potential to remediate malnutrition. She remains on the faculty of Washington University and is still an active member of the toxicology team. She has lectured nationally and internationally on a diverse range of topics in medical toxicology and global health.
