Environmental Health Policy

The Session Long Project (SLP) for this course entails development of a series of position papers (one page) on the topics introduced in each module. After reading and reviewing the required materials for the modules, draft a position paper informed by what you learned from this background information.

For this initial SLP assignment, your position paper should address the environmental justice implications of clean water.
