May 14, 2016 – At the Seven Hills Neighborhood Houses – Findlay Street Center, Dr. Melinda Butsch Kovacic and Curtis Maples, held the first “Meet and Greet” session to kick off the West End Community Citizen Science Program. This program is a research initiative intended to investigate strategies to identify and address potential public health concerns within the West End community specifically related to air pollution and drinking water. Under leadership of members of the community, the participants of the program will receive training in the application of the scientific process to gain insights into the public health and environment of the West End community.
The program is currently based in the Seven Hills Community Houses Center where it will also host its meetings. The program will last about two months which will culminate into a West End Clean Up Day and a presentation of the results of the study.
The program is currently seeking more volunteers. Those who are interested in participating are encouraged to contact Curtis Maples at email@example.com for more information.
