Security/Widefield assessment underway


Last updated 9/30/2020 at 10:27am

Our ATSDR study is successfully underway! I stopped by the Security Fire Station #1 for a visit, and our scientists were all safely working under a giant white tent to check people in at their appointment times. Karen Scranton was pleased to have an extra copy of the paper from last week to keep for their own records. She told me they successfully found 200 homes with people who had lived there before 2016, and another 450 willing participants who offered. Since this was a random selection of homes in this specific community, those of you who volunteered to participate this round but couldn't, please hold tight! Our next study DOES take volunteers and we need about 1,200 people and about 300 children ages 4 years old (they were babies in 2016) to age 18. I am so proud of our community here; well done, everyone! We are accomplishing great things together.

The ATSDR health study is set up for resident screenings at Security Fire Station No. 1.
