These community conversations are part of a two-year project being conducted by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) to create an action agenda for strengthening the United State’s approach to protecting the public from harmful chemical exposures. They are working with local groups, like ours, to gather input on the issues that will help guide the process.

 

Please go here for more information about the community conversations.
