The Philadelphia Association for Critical Thinking (PHACT) of which I have been a member for many years, is having a discussion:

Risky Business: Assessing Risks to Human Health

What is risk? Which risks matter? Mike Jaycock, PH.D., CIH will give a talk on how we view risk and how scientists calculate health risks.

Come and participate at this event on Saturday, February 21, 2004 at 2:00 PM at Community College of Philadelphia in the West Building, Room W2-48, at 17th and Spring Garden Streets in Philadelphia.

I cannot attend as I will be at NACHI's Atlanta Chapter meeting. However I am a member of PHACT and have arranged for fellow NACHI members to attend without need to RSVP. The event is free and NACHI members are welcome to bring a friend.


PS. I'm sure that the risks of mold, radon, fire, household safety issues, driving compact cars, etc... will be discussed in terms of statistical loss of life expectancy.
