(05/06/03) In a recently announced EPA initiative to protect older Americans from environmental health hazards, EPA will convene the last in a series of public listening sessions held across the country. The public listening sessions are part of a nationwide effort to encourage public participation in the development of a National Agenda on the Environment and the Aging. The National Agenda will build on EPA’s ongoing aging research efforts, identify research gaps in environmental health, develop strategies to prepare for a rapidly aging population, and encourage older adults to volunteer in local environmental health awareness and improvement efforts.
