Below are excerpts from the announcement from the UCR Newsroom.
Professor David Eastmond at the University of California, Riverside has been elected a fellow of the Collegium Ramazzini, an organization of international scholars who work towards solutions of occupational and environmental health problems around the world.
Founded as an independent, international academy in 1982 and headquartered in Carpi, Italy, the Collegium Ramazzini is comprised of a select group of no more than 180 fellows from about 40 different countries, each fellow being distinguished by his or her contributions to occupation and environmental health. .....
Eastmond is the second faculty member at UC Riverside to be honored by the Collegium Ramazzini. In 2004, Carl Cranor, a professor of philosophy (and member of the Environmental Toxicology Graduate Program faculty), was named a fellow of the prestigious academy.
