Ted Schettler, M.D., M.P.H.

Dr. Ted Schettler is science director of the Science and Environmental Health Network and the Collaborative on Health and Environment. An accomplished writer, Ted is a principal author of a report,  Environmental Threats to Healthy Aging, the most comprehensive review of research linking lifetime exposure and influences, beginning in the womb, to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other chronic illnesses. Ted’s groundbreaking research has revolutionized the way we think about the connection between early-life exposures and later-life disease and has influenced the course we will take toward creating a healthy future.

For his contributions to our scientific understanding of environmental exposures, Ted was honored with a Science Hero Award by the Breast Cancer Fund in 2009.
