Purpose: This subcommittee is charged with providing advice and recommendations to the Director, CDC, and the Administrator, ATSDR, regarding community concerns pertaining to CDC’s and ATSDR’s public health activities and research at this DOE site. The purpose of this meeting is to provide a forum for community interaction, and serve as a vehicle for members of the public to express concerns and provide recommendations to CDC and ATSDR.
