May Community Health Committee (CHC) Meeting
Environmental Health is Public Health: the Flint Water Crisis and the Washtenaw County Dioxane Contamination
The Flint water crisis put environmental health back in the local and national news. This meeting explored what and why it happened and what community based organizations are doing to prevent it from happening again. We also discussed one of our local environmental health challenges, the Washtenaw County 1,4-dioxane contamination, and what we can all do to reduce toxins in our communities and how to address common routes of lead exposure and lead testing for children.
Meetings are open to the public and from noon – 2:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided. A $5 donation is suggested. Dates to be announced.
