Chemicals and health briefings

Contracted by the International Chemical Secretariat, ChemSec, to synthesise complex data about the environmental impacts of chemicals into actionable, scientifically credible information for lay audiences and policy-makers.

  • Wrote Wikipedia entries (here and here) for the organisation, handling the conflict-of-interest issue to the satisfaction of the encyclopaedia
  • Wrote and edited factsheets for the launch event of their SIN List project in Brussels, attended by NGOs, industry and MEPs
  • Edited a series of press releases and reports from 1-90 pages in length for grammar, language and overall structure, including a report commissioned by the Nordic Council of Ministers
  • Produced a series of simple web briefings for lay audiences summarising the science associating chemicals with health effects. Covered 9 topics, including obesity, neurodevelopmental disorders and thyroid dysfunction

I really am a fan of the website briefings – short, clear and with so much condensed information.” Amanda Huss, ChemSec
