A Q&A will follow the film, including guidelines for safeguarding ourselves and our families against these potential dangers. Opening remarks by Sarah Aminoff. Discussion led by Ellie Marks, founder and director of the California Brain Tumor Association, and California Alliance for Safer Technology, and Lloyd Morgan, senior research fellow, Environmental Health Trust, Board Member, International EMF Alliance & Board Member, Director, Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States(CBTRUS).
