It is with a heavy heart that I bring you the news that yesterday, at the age of 87, Theo Colborn passed away. She was at home, surrounded by her family.
As with all great leaders, Theo’s inspiration lives on – in her published works, in the scientists she mentored and the activists she inspired, in the people she helped in so many ways, and in the love of her friends and family.
Theo’s immense courage was both intimidating and inspiring. Against all odds, she succeeded in getting the world to pay attention to an invisible threat. Yet there is much work still to be done.
As TEDX’s Executive Director for the past 6 years I can assure you that we will continue with the same fierce commitment to ensuring that the science of endocrine disruption drives better laws to protect the health of all people.

In loving remembrance,
