Biology Professor Quoted at ABC News; Offers Expertise to State Hearing

 Rebecca Roberts, Biology, was interviewed on her research into the use of the chemical bisphenol-A (BPA) by ABC News and the article appears online. During the same week she provided testimony in Harrisburg, in front of the House Democratic Policy Committee about House Bill192, which is aimed at eliminating the use of BPA in baby bottles and other containers used by kids. State Rep. Larry Curry, D-Montgomery/Phila., requested the hearing and served as its co-chairman. Curry has introduced legislation (H.B. 192) that would ban BPA from baby products sold and manufactured in Pennsylvania.
