Unsealing the Science: What the Public can Learn from Internal Chemical Industry Documents

A panel discussion with the donors of three new UCSF chemical industry documents collections - the Glyphosate and Agrochemical Collection (Gary Ruskin, US Right to Know), the Poison Papers (Jonathan Latham, Bioscience Resource Project), and the Benzene Collection (Raphael Metzger, principal of the Metzger Law Group) will explore what the documents mean for public health and the perils they faced in making these documents public.

Professor Stanton Glantz, who began the library with the first collection of internal tobacco industry documents, will introduce the panel and explain how the documents have been used to inform litigation, documentaries, and public policy decisions. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Tracey Woodruff, Professor and Director of the UCSF Program on Reproductive Health and the Environment and Co-Director of the UCSF Environmental Health Initiative, which has supported the development of the Chemical Industry Documents library.

Panel discussion from 3:30-5:30 at Cole Hall Auditorium, UCSF Parnassus Campus.
