EPA: Join the National Conversation on Public Health and Chemical Exposures

Together with our partners, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) have created an exciting new way for you to join the conversation about better ways to protect the public from harmful chemical exposures.
Use the Community Conversation Toolkit to host a Community Conversation!
Our Community Conversation Toolkit is now available for download at http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/nationalconversation/Community_conversations.html. Community conversations are an essential part of the National Conversation. Through them, we hope to gather community-based ideas that will contribute to the project’s final action agenda. The toolkit will help you plan and host a productive conversation and offers guidance for summarizing the ideas discussed.
And, there is limited funding available! If you would like to apply for a mini-grant of up to $500 to assist you with expenses, please read the eligibility criteria and apply soon (applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until funds are exhausted).
We encourage you to hold a conversation about chemical exposure issues in your community before June 30, 2010. The toolkit provides guidance about summarizing your conversation, which we will synthesize with summaries from dozens of other conversations being held throughout the country into a report. The report will be shared with the National Conversation work groups and the Leadership Council and will inform their work as they begin developing the action agenda.
We are tracking these conversations, so please let us know when you set a date. We appreciate the investment of your time and energy to engage your community in this important conversation.
