Listen to Mariana Cárdenas, Harvard researcher and PhD, speak about the implications of water pollution on human health. Enjoy drinks and botanas.


Dr. Mariana Cárdenas, Ph.D. is an Assistant Program Director at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, part of Harvard Medical School. Mariana’s topic will be Water & Health: Implications of Water Pollution on Human Health.

As a leading toxicologist who grew up just down the road in Dolores Hidalgo, Mariana has tremendous passion for this subject. Her current focus is on determining the relationships between water pollutants, like those we see here, and the increased risk of developing chronic kidney disease. Having heard Mariana speak on several occasions, I can promise it to be a very powerful, informative, and a not-to-be-missed address. Mariana will also take questions from the audience.

In her talk Mariana will tackle the following:

  • Where have the pollutants in our water come from?

  • What are the main sources of exposure?

  • Who is at risk and how do you prevent exposure?

  • Most importantly, how can our society (affected communities, NGO’s, decision makers, etc) effectively tackle the public health issues associated with increasing water contamination?

In addition to this important talk, there will be a cocktail hour with botanas, drinks, and live music.

The event will take place in a beautiful private home located near the Rosewood Hotel. Tickets are 1,200 Pesos ($60USD) each, including a donation to Caminos de Agua (to buy tickets or make a reservation, click here)
