Movie Screening and Panel Discussion around “Dark Waters” – The Business and Societal Impacts of Drinking Water Contamination


Join us for a discussion on “Dark Waters,” a movie that focuses on the business and societal impacts of drinking contaminated water. This event aims to raise awareness of the impacts of chemicals of concern, such as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), in our drinking water and how organizations can move away from the use of toxic “forever chemicals.”

Moderated by Natalie Jackson, MBA Candidate at Harvard Business School, the event will include a panel discussion featuring Harvard environmental health leaders Dr. Joseph Allen (HSPH), Dr. Elsie Sunderland (HSPH & Harvard SEAS) and Heather Henriksen (Managing Director, OFS).
