The Necessity to Move Beyond Hydrocarbons: A Talk by Stephanie Pincetl

The UCLA Global Health and Social Medicine Grand Round Series features Stephanie Pincetl, PhD. on Monday, March 22, 2021 from 5 to 6pm PDT via Zoom.

Dr. Pincetl is the Chair of Environmental Science and Engineering and a professor at the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, and the founding director of the California Center for Sustainable Communities at UCLA. Dr. Pincetl’s lecture will address humanity’s dependence on oil and its by-products, including how it has transformed human existence. Her talk will challenge the audience to imagine a post carbon world.

The DGSOM Global Health Program (GHP) and Center for Social Medicine and Humanities are partnering to host a recurring lecture series during the 2020/2021 academic year. The goal of this Grand Round Series is to bring together individuals with diverse sets of experiences and areas of expertise to help DGSOM trainees and the larger community, within and beyond UCLA, confront health disparities both locally and globally, and to delve deeper into the social determinants of global health equity.
