Questions about health impacts of TCE exposure in your home? Master of Public Health candidate Carly Rickett may be able to help with answers. 

Residents with questions about health impacts are invited to send their questions (preferably by July 15) to Ms. Rickett at stock220@umn.edu, or by voice mail at (612) 624-1888. With your questions, Carly will create a Frequently Asked Questions document that can help any residents who have similar concerns.


Carly will also be available at two Question and Answer sessions:
Wednesday, July 16 and Thursday, July 24
6:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Van Cleve Park Multi-Purpose Room


Many residents’ homes have been tested for TCE and they have the test results, but may have continuing questions about what it means for their health. Community members have asked  for more information, in plain language, about what the TCE exposure means for them. Carly was recruited for this assignment by the UMN School of Public Health, at the request of the University District Alliance and Southeast Como neighborhood leaders. Ms. Rickett has been immersing herself in the issue and meeting with community members and technical experts, and she is coordinating her work with the public agencies involved in the issue. Betsy Wattenberg and Peter Raynor, Associate Professors in Environmental Health Sciences, are faculty advisors on the project. Residents with questions about health impacts are invited to send their questions (preferably by July 15) to Ms. Rickett at stock220@umn.edu, or by voice mail at (612) 624-1888. With your questions, Carly will create a Frequently Asked Questions document that can help any residents who have similar concerns.
