Dr. Dawn Ford and her team of second year MPH students, including Jaleesa Brumfield, Rosa Cantu, Zach North, and Kavina Patel, have been working diligently to raise awareness and test children for lead poisoning funded by the UTC Equity Fellows program. The team has been active in coordinating events across the community to help affected residents of Southside Chattanooga clean up the contaminated soil and reduce the health hazard caused by lead poisoning including the Minority Health Fair & Cempa Health Fair. These efforts have led to the collaborations with the EPA and UTC School of Nursing.
