Faiola is Wyland Foundation hero

Mon, 04/16/2018

The Wyland Foundation has informed AirUCI faculty Celia Faiola that she has been named as their 2018 Earth Month Hero, which is awarded to people who are making a difference to the planet.  She was selected because of her efforts to step out of the laboratory and engage with the Southern California community.  She has done this in various ways, including speaking at rallies, providing expert feedback to policymakers in Sacramento, and participating in local public education community events, always advocating for evidence-based policies.  On April 30th the award presentation will be broadcast live on KCAL-TV.  Congratulations, Celia!
