    "ATSDR's Brownfield/Land Reuse Health Initiative helps communities incorporate health considerations in land reuse decisions. People can turn vacant or underused land into places that benefit the whole community. ATSDR works with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), state and local officials, developers, and communities to include health in these types of projects. ATSDR promotes community health as part of redevelopment. There are many ways which we can assist the community. We may measure the level of chemicals in the body to determine if people are exposed to contaminants. We may communicate and educate communities on health risks in this community. We may evaluate health outcomes for certain diseases. We may assist in organizing the community to address identified health issues. The Leading Change for Health Communities and Successful Land Reuse is the 'how to' guide for all members of the development community to promote health as a part of redevelopment. The diverse community projects in this book represent some of the many examples of healthy redevelopment projects across the country." - foreword
