Join the UofL Sustainability Council for our Spring Sustainability Roundtable series on alternate Tuesdays from 4:00-4:50pm (1/18, 2/1, 2/15, 3/1, 3/29, 4/12).
Our featured speaker on March 1st will be Lauren Anderson, Research Manager at UofL's Center for Healthy Air Water and Soil in the Christina Lee Brown Envirome Institute at the School of Medicine. Lauren holds a master’s degree in Public Administration from the UofL and is a Research Management Professional. As a Program Manager for the Envirome Institute and Center for Healthy Air Water and Soil, Lauren specializes in leading collaborative teams through community-facing projects and clinical trials. She has a particular interest in project communication and research translation with a focus on environmental and wellbeing research.
Lauren has managed portfolios for the Institute for Healthy Air Water and Soil, a Louisville-based environmental nonprofit, the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness. Prior to joining Public Health, Lauren worked for Louisville Metro Community Services and received her Bachelor of Arts from Transylvania University in Lexington.
She will be speaking about Green Heart Louisville, a project of UofL's Envirome Institute that is using south-side neighborhoods of Louisville as a living laboratory to explore if planting trees and increasing green space in a neighborhood improves air quality and human health with the goal of developing a “greenprint” for creating healthier neighborhoods.
No pre-registration is required. The format is a 30-40 minute presentation from a variety of speakers throughout the year, followed by 20-30 minutes of open discussion.
Anyone with an interest in sustainability can give talks at the speaker series and participate in the audience, including faculty, staff, students, practitioners, teachers, government officials, and members of the public.
