Dr. Mitch Gaynor to Speak on Air Quality and Human Health

Saturday, September 16, 2006 at 2 PM
Friends of Hudson
611 Warren Street, 2nd Floor

On Saturday, September 16 at 2PM, oncologist and author Mitch Gaynor M.D. will discuss the health effects of poor air quality, drawing on research from his latest book. The presentation, entitled “Air Quality and Human Health” will take place at Friends of Hudson, 611 Warren Street, 2nd Floor, Hudson.

The Saturday talk is part of an ongoing speakers’ series that has explored a number of dimensions of Friends of Hudson’s work including open government, the State Environmental Quality Review Act, alternative energy technologies, and wise land use.

Air quality concerns have been at the core of Friends of Hudson’s mission from its inception. According to Christopher Reed, FoH President, “Dr. Gaynor’s perspective as a physician who sees the effects of air-born toxics in his patients is especially valuable right now as a catalyst for action. There needs to be a broader base of citizens and decision-makers, educated in the data he will lay out, pressing for more stringent air quality standards by industry and government alike.”

Dr. Gaynor is the founder of the New York City-based Gaynor Integrative Oncology and Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at Weill College, affiliated with Cornell University and New York Hospital. A part-time resident of Hillsdale, Dr. Gaynor took an active role in the SLC campaign, including providing expert testimony in the course of the adjudicatory review by the DEC. Copies of his latest book Nurture Nature/Nurture Health: Your Health and the Environment will be available for purchase.
