Don’t miss the Port bus tour! Last bus for Seaport/Community tour leaves at 8:50 AM.

The Ironbound Community Corporation, the New Jersey Environmental Justice Alliance and Clean Water Action will give the tour from the community perspective. Tour goers will get a bird’s eye view of what it’s like to live in the Ironbound or the South Ward, right next to the largest port on the East Coast.  Public Health professionals from Rutgers University and Mt. Sinai will speak to the health effects of the chemicals in air emissions on people, especially children. The New York New Jersey Port Authority will accompany us into the Port and share what they are doing to “green” the Port.

Don’t miss this opportunity. In order to reserve your seat on the bus, register for the conference today.

The Center for Environmental Exposures and Disease (CEED) was established in 1987 with a goal of understanding, detecting, preventing and solving environmental health problems through collaborative research. The Center has received generous support from NIEHS for the last 30 years [ES005022], as one of 22 Centers of Excellence. CEED currently has approximately 88 members from 23 Rutgers departments.

Regionally, CEED serves New Jersey, the most densely populated and perhaps the most heavily polluted state in the nation. Nationally, our members serve as advisors to state and local officials, and citizen groups on issues of pollution and consequent disease, environmental health education and disease prevention.
