The International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation has developed a webinar, "Clarifying the Controversies: The Science of Bisphenol A (BPA),” to provide insights and perspectives on emerging science, scientific evaluation as well as risk perception utilizing bisphenol A (BPA) as a case study. Dr. Justin Teeguarden will discuss the emerging pharmacokinetic studies and their potential impact on BPA research past and present. Dr. Julie Jones will then identify best practices for health professionals to evaluate scientific studies. Finally, Dr. George Gray will provide insights into public perceptions about risks and emerging science and technology. While we do not record our webinars for later viewing, you can download a copy of most of the slides here.
