Public Health and Environmental Justice Workshop


Tainted water. Oil refineries. Incinerators. Steel mills. Interstate freeways. Lead pipes. Lead paint. Food insecurity. Old schools. Old homes. All are known to cause human health problems – and all are part of everyday life in cities across the United States. 

It’s a public health crisis – and a deep journalistic well of stories.

Using Detroit as a model, the Institute for Journalism & Natural Resources (IJNR) will conduct an all-expenses-paid workshop over two days designed to help journalists understand how environment problems impact communities.

Early registration limited to NABJ conference attendees and/or members. Remaining spots, if they exist, will be made available in mid-July.
