    Alice Hamilton was born on February 27, 1869 and spent her life working for safer workplaces and communities, human rights and a peaceful world.

    Let’s celebrate her birthday!

    Hear about Alice’s role in worker safety, women’s rights, her Connecticut connection and rare videos.

    About Alice Hamilton:

    Born in New York City on February 27, 1869, Alice Hamilton was a physician and a leading authority on lead poisoning and industrial diseases. Her work led to improved safety standards nationwide. Hamilton died in 1970. In tribute to her work, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health presents its annual Alice Hamilton Award for Excellence in Occupational Safety and Health in her name to scientists and engineers who excel in the field. Hamilton was also the first woman appointed to the faculty of Harvard University.

    There will be birthday cake and drinks.

    Sponsored by:
    The Connecticut Coalition for Environmental Justice
    The Connecticut Council on Occupational Safety and Health
