NEW PALTZ >> Bi­ol­o­gist and cancer sur­vivor San­dra Ste­in­graber, the au­thor of “Liv­ing Down­stream: An Ecol­o­gist’s Per­sonal In­ves­ti­ga­tion of Cancer and the En­vi­ron­ment,” will present a free lec­ture at SUNY New Paltz ti­tled “The Hu­man Health Con­se­quences of Fos­sil Fuel” at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 2 in Lec­ture Cen­ter 100 at the col­lege.

Ste­in­graber was the first to bring to­gether data on toxic re­leases with data from U.S. cancer reg­istries to demon­strate the health haz­ards of toxic ma­te­ri­als in the en­vi­ron­ment. Her re­search was adapted for the screen in 2010.

Prior to Ste­in­graber’s speech, her doc­u­men­tary, “Liv­ing Down­stream,” will be screened at SUNY New Paltz at 7 p.m. Oct. 26 in Lec­ture Cen­ter 100.

As both a book and a doc­u­men­tary film, “Liv­ing Down­stream” has won praise from in­ter­na­tional me­dia. Ste­in­graber has re­ceived many honors for her work as a science writer, in­clud­ing, in 2011, a Heinz Award.
