This website grew out of a town meeting,
Environmental Health in Our Neighborhoods: Speaking Out
About Pollution and Health, that was co-sponsored by the
of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and the
Chronic Disease Prevention and Control Research Center at
Baylor College of Medicine, with the support and
the regional NIEHS Centers as well as area universities, organizations and individuals. From surveys, questions
raised at the meeting and post-meeting discussions, three community-based task forces were
formed to address the primary concerns raised by the Houston-area community.
This website grew out of that effort.
