In this seminar sponsored by the Superfund Research Program (SRP), Anna Goodman Hoover, SRP grantee from the University of Kentucky, will present "Using Community-Based Participatory Communication in Superfund Communities." This overview will focus on a community-driven future vision for the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant (PGDP) which has been impacted by trichloroethylene and technetium-99 contamination in the groundwater. Sharon Lin, US EPA, will present "Risk Reduction Through Behavior Change," focusing on activities around the Palos Verdes Shelf Superfund Site, one of the largest DDT and PCB contaminated sediment sites in the country. She will speak about a community based social marketing approach used to educate local fishermen and community members about health risks of eating contaminated fish and to promote safer fishing and fish eating practices. This is the first session of the RiskeLearning Spring/Summer 2011 series "Community Engagement: New Approaches and Success Stories." The Series Introduction will be given by Dr. Linda Birnbaum, Director, NIEHS. The session will be moderated by Ms. Beth Anderson, Superfund Research Program (NIEHS).
