Title: Innovative Small Water Systems Progress Review
Date: October 2, 2014
9:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. CDT
Location:

Webinar

Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center
Medical Education Building, Room S10 (3109)
1901 Perdido Street
New Orleans, LA

Purpose:

Please join us for a research progress review on improving the ability of small water systems to protect the health and water quality in their communities. Many small water systems are challenged to efficiently and effectively provide safe water to their users because of limited managerial, financial, and technical resources. In 2011, EPA funded 11 projects on the design of sustainable technologies for small drinking water systems. EPA continued this effort by funding two National Research Centers for innovation in small drinking water systems. At this meeting, STAR grantees from both funding opportunities will present their research plans and any progress.

Title: EPA/NIEHS Children's Centers 2014 Webinar Series
Date: October 8, 2014
1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. EDT
Location: Webinar
Purpose:

Join us for this month's webinar. The webinar features presentations and interactive discussions including recent findings and new developments in children’s environmental health.

Making Science Matter: Connecting Science and Communities
Overwhelming scientific evidence finds that environmental chemical exposures can adversely impact development and that certain communities can bear a greater burden of environmental exposures. There is a consistent need to connect science and communities, including working in collaboration to ensure the best science can support community goals and to ensure that scientific information is translated and communicated effectively to support community and society wide activities to reduce harmful chemical exposures. This webinar will present an overview of the science and examples of how community and scientists can work together to reduce harmful chemical exposures and improve health.

Title: EPA STAR Black Carbon Progress Review Meeting
Date: November 13 - 14, 2014
Location: EPA in Research Triangle Park, Auditorium C111
and Online Webinar
Purpose:

Please join us for a STAR research progress review on research projects on black carbon, air quality, and global change. STAR grantees and EPA scientists will discuss progress on their projects on this pollutant, which contributes to human health impacts, visibility degradation, and climate change. These projects focus on various aspects of the black carbon issue, such as better accounting for its emissions, tracking its climate-relevant properties as it ages in the atmosphere, and better representing its ability to form cloud droplets.
