The Lead Catastrophe in Utica – Freedom School Class – Thursday, December 18



There is a major public health problem locally that few are talking about. Utica is the epicenter for instances of lead poisoning and the piloting of lead prevention programs in New York State. Join MVCC student and researcher Lana Nitti as she leads the Mohawk Valley Freedom School in a discussion to take a deeper look into the lead catastrophe in our community, who it impacts, and why. We will examine this important issue through a social, economic, and scientific lens to ensure that we have the necessary knowledge to make positive changes in our community. We welcome you to become a citizen scientist!

Class will begin at 7:00 and dinner will be served at 6:30.
