On Sunday, Sept. 22 at 3 p.m., the Waccamaw Library will host a special presentation by Leonardo Trasande, M.D., M.P.P., an internationally regarded leader in children’s environmental health and author of “Sicker, Fatter, Poorer: The Urgent Threat of Hormone-Disrupting Chemicals on Our Health and Future” (2019).

The presentation is free and open to all, and is sponsored by the Friends of the Waccamaw Library (FOWL). Dr. Transande’s talk will be followed by a book signing. The Waccamaw Library is located at 41 St. Paul Place, Pawleys Island.

Dr. Transande exposes the chemicals that disrupt our hormone systems and damage our health in irreparable ways.

He reveals the environmental causes that have increased neurodevelopmental disorders like autism and ADHD as well as metabolic, reproductive, and immunological diseases, such as diabetes, obesity, and infertility. Sicker, Fatter, Poorer has been called “an incredible tool for business leaders and wellness warriors alike.”
