April 29, 2013: Southeast Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit at Emory University & The Institute for the Study of Disadvantage and Disability present “Break the Cycle of Environmental Health Disparities 8”
“Hidden in Plain Sight: Community Attitudes, Knowledge and Action Plans to Remediate Roosevelt’s Brownfields” by Sharisse Carter
Breaking the Cycle of Environmental Health Disparities is a grant program, sponsored in conjunction with Emory University, which awards qualified recipients with the opportunity to research and bring awareness to environmental health concerns in their communities. Hidden in Plain Sight is my approach to bringing awareness to the Roosevelt community regarding several properties that have been exposed to toxic chemicals and could be hazardous to our community. What we hope to accomplish with your feedback is to gain invaluable insight to what our community residents knows about these contaminated sites, how they feel about the existence of contaminated properties in our neighborhood, what approaches our community leaders should take in helping to make our environment healthier, and what kinds of action plans can be developed to ensure our community is healthier for generations to come.
