Arsenic Meetings Bring Stakeholders Together
The Dartmouth SRP partnered with the Mt. Desert Island Biological Lab to hold a
two-day stakeholder-driven meeting focusing on reducing the human health consequences of arsenic in the environment. The Summit 2014: Consequences of Arsenic in Water and Food
brought together over 40 participants from state and federal government, industry, not-for profits, education organizations, industry, media and academia to craft specific long and short-term goals to address the issue.
The New Hampshire Arsenic Consortium Annual Meeting followed soon after and had record attendance. Current research and outreach activities were presented in the morning and the afternoon was reserved for discussion on areas chosen by the group --increasing municipal participation in reducing arsenic exposure, working with the medical community, addressing treatment systems, and how to use digital mapping to communicate information.
