Working at the Christiansburg Women and Minorities Health fair was a very insightful experience. While there, we were able to connect with people and inform them about endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). We found that most attendees had heard of BPA, but had no idea why it was bad or how to avoid it. We were there to form that bridge between the science of EDCs and the regular household. I feel that we were really able to reach families that otherwise would never have known about EDCs and their potential effects. We were also met with attendees with some unconventional beliefs about EDCs, which gave us some insight into the importance of public outreach. It was very rewarding, and I plan to continue to reach the public in ways similar to this for the rest of my life.
