Don’t Worry If you Missed it.

No worries if you missed the recent conference at Boston University “Natural Gas Infrastructure and Public Health: From Local To Global” —  you can catch the video here!
Wellesley’s own Dr. Regina LaRocque (MGH and member of the Wellesley NRC) was a lead organizer of this impressive event at Boston University on January 30, 2018. The conference focused on the impact of our local energy choices on the health of our communities.
