Public Health's Environmental Health Division helps to produce two radio shows in collaboration with WEMU News. Tune in to hear about environmental issues impacting Washtenaw County!
Issues of the Environment
Weekly radio show that airs each Wednesday at 8:20am.
- Wednesday, May 13: Jeff Irwin, State Representative-(D-Ann Arbor) 53rd District, will discuss his sponsorship of a package of bills aimed at adding some state level safeguards for oil and gas pipelines
The Green Room
Monthly radio show that airs the last Friday of each month at 6:50am and 8:50am.
- Friday, May 29: E-Waste
According to the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), Americans now own approximately 24 electronic products per household, and the amount discarded is increasing each year (2.5 million tons in 2010). This cycle of consumption and disposal has significant environmental repercussions. What can be done to lessen the negative impacts?
Tune in to 89.1FM WEMU to hear the shows on air, or listen to archived shows on our Issues of the Environment and The Green Room pages. For questions or ideas for future show topics, please contact Mary Mathias.
