  • Description:
    "The National Conversation on Public Health and Chemical Exposures is a collaborative project, supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). The National Conversation vision is for chemicals to be used and managed in ways that are safe and healthy for all people. The project's goal is to develop an action agenda with clear, achievable recommendations that can help government agencies, tribes, and other organizations strengthen their efforts to protect the public from harmful chemical exposures. The National Conversation Leadership Council will author the action agenda, utilizing input from six project work groups and members of the public who chose to participate in web dialogues and community conversations and offer comments. National Conversation work groups were formed to research and make recommendations on the following six crosscutting public health and chemical exposures issues: monitoring, scientific understanding, policies and practices, chemical emergencies, serving communities, and education and communication. This report is the product of the Chemical Emergencies work group's deliberations. While issued to the National Conversation Leadership Council, the work group hopes that this report will be of value to others in a position to act on the recommendations contained herein. CDC and ATSDR worked with several groups to manage the National Conversation, including RESOLVE, a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the effective use of consensus building in public decision-making, the American Public Health Association, the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, and the National Association of County and City Health Officials. These organizations and others helped ensure that a broad range of groups and individuals were engaged throughout this collaborative process, including government agencies, professional organizations, American Indian/Alaska Native tribes (AI/AN), community and non-profit organizations, health professionals, business and industry leaders, and members of the public" - p. 1
