Learning about Environmental Toxins
In conjunction with the Advancing Healthy Homes Initiative, youth from Erie Neighborhood House heard a presentation on environmental health by CURL fellows and visited the Lake Shore campus to witness the chemical processes of measuring the levels of heavy metals in hair samples. They also talked with our colleagues at the Institute of Environmental Sustainability about the use of mapping in presenting research findings. CURL is pleased to host such visits that expose youth in Chicago to collaborative research being done in their communities on a variety of topics.
