Pesticide News Story: Pesticide Program Grant Will Advance Environmental Justice
For Release: June 9, 2010
The Office of Pesticide Programs has published online a request seeking proposals to support the Pesticides and National Strategies for Healthcare Providers, Clinical Training Program.
This Clinical Training Program grant will help further EPA’s dedication to Environmental Justice by training clinicians and other stakeholders in the agricultural and medical community to recognize and manage pesticide-related health conditions. Our investment of up to $1.2 million over five years will improve care of farmworkers and their families, as this community is generally understood to be medically underserved and therefore at greater likelihood to have exposure incidents and illnesses that go undetected.
Proposals will be accepted through July 26, 2010.
