How A Corporate Defense Lawyer Changed Public Health ft. Rob Bilott
Show Notes

If public health is a population-based field of science for preventing diseases and promoting health, what can a corporate defense attorney possibly do to positively influence the health of millions of people? Discovering the impacts of toxic chemicals on a community and holding chemical companies accountable for their actions is a good place to start.

Understanding the intersection of science, regulatory processes, and law is of critical importance to ensuring an environment that preserves the health of humans and animals.

In this episode of the Public Health Insight Podcast, we spoke to Rob Bilott, Partner and internationally-recognized Attorney at Taft Law Firm, about his work in uncovering the public health impact of forever chemicals, advocating for environmental justice through the practice of law, and his book, Exposure, which was adapted into a film called Dark Waters.
