Breast Cancer-Related Chemicals in Products Used by Black Women

April 17 , 12:00 pm 1:00 pm EDT

Hear from Dr. Elissia Franklin about the disproportionate exposure to chemicals that Black women face when using health and beauty products—and what must be done to address this problem. Dr. Elissia Franklin is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Silent Spring Institute whose work focuses on chemical exposure assessment. She has expertise in mass spectrometric analysis and lipidomics, a subset of metabolomics, which she is applying to exposomics (the study of environmental exposures that an individual experiences) and biomonitoring work. She also is involved in epidemiological and community-based research, intervention studies, and exposure evaluation.
