|Movie Premieres Spur Community Conversations about Mercury
In September, the Dartmouth Toxic Metals Superfund Research Program (SRP) hosted community members at movie premieres in Boston and two New Hampshire locations. After initial remarks by lead scientist Celia Chen, Ph.D. and other experts, Dartmouth’s Research Translation Core presented the new 10-minute film Mercury: From Source to Seafood, which describes how mercury enters the food chain and then clarifies misconceptions about the benefits and risks of eating seafood. Community members and stakeholders subsequently engaged in a discussion about the movie during both a question and answer period and a reception. The conversations continued on-air as NHPR’s Brady Carlson and WNHN’s Arnie Arnesen interviewed Professor Chen.
