Local Health Officials & TURA

Organization(s) Massachusetts Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description On Tuesday, June 5, 2001 120 persons attended a conference in Marlboro, MA entitled "Reducing Toxics, Improving Public Health: Tools and Resources for the Local Public Health Community." This conference was the first in what is hoped to be a series of events and activities to bridge the information and assistance gap between state environmental agencies and local health officials. The MA Toxics Use Reduction Program, in collaboration with the Department of Public Health and the Massachusetts Health Officers Association, organized the conference. Opening speakers included Secretary Bob Durand, Undersecretary Gina McCarthy, and Commissioner of Public Health, Howard Koh. Conference breakout sessions focused on: Improving Indoor Air Quality, Health Effects of Toxics on Adults and Children, Chemical Management in Public Facilities, Reducing Pesticides in Communities, and Toxics in Small Business and Industry.
