The Harvard School of Public Health will host a community meeting at the Ravena Coeymans Selkirk High School Auditorium on January 6, 2011 at 8PM to present findings from heavy metal testing conducted by HSPH in conjunction with CASE in May 2010. This meeting will include a presentation and Q&A, and will be a valuable opportunity to hear first-hand about the status so far of Harvard's human biomonitoring investigation in the Ravena, NY area.
The NYS DEC will host a Legislative Public Hearing on Lafarge's proposed modernization for its Ravena cement plant on January 20, 2011, 6 PM, also at the RCS High School Auditorium.
