Public Health and Our Ports: The Road to Clean Air
October 26, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
Rutgers Center for Environmental Exposures and Disease (CEED) presents an environmental health conference focused on the public health impacts of New Jersey’s port activities on port-adjacent communities. The overall goal of the event will be to educate the greater community and articulate solutions that improve the health and well-being in affected communities.
The Ironbound Community Corporation, the New Jersey Environmental Justice Alliance, and Clean Water Action will give the tour from the community perspective. Learn what it’s like to live in the Ironbound or the South Ward, right next to the largest port on the East Coast. Public health professionals from Rutgers and Mount Sinai will speak to the health effects of the chemicals in air emissions on people, especially children. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will accompany us into the Port and provide an update on its efforts to “green” the Port.
Rutgers Center for Law and Justice, 123 Washington Street, Newark, NJ
