In this episode we talk to NYU GPH faculty member Jack Caravanos, who works as the Director of Research at Pure Earth alongside Angela Bernhardt, who serves as Director of Communications at this organization. Pure Earth, formerly known as the Blacksmith Institute, is a leader in global toxic pollution cleanup. Since its inception in 1999, Pure Earth has completed 110 environmental remediation projects in 27 countries, improving the lives of millions of people, especially children, who are most at risk from the threat of toxic pollution. Based in New York, Pure Earth works cooperatively around the world in partnerships that include governments, the international community, NGOs and local agencies, to design and implement innovative, low-cost solutions to save lives while addressing the threat of toxic pollution on a global scale.
