On Monday evening Jan. 25 at 7:00 p.m. we will have the next Reid-Knox Forum focused on the lessons of the last 50 years growing from the PBB Accident in 1973. We will briefly review the history of the accident and then give time to discussing the on-going human health studies and efforts to deal with concerns of people exposed and their descendants. While parts of this story are old, it is as recent as a story on January 3, 2021 describing the new state website that facilitates getting current health information and joining or re-joining the PBB study. We’ll also highlight other ways you can participate by serving on one of the advisory committees for PBB.
Dr. Brittney Fremion a history professor at Central Michigan University will be co-presenting. Brittany runs the PBB Oral History Project. She not only is good at summarizing the oral histories they already have gathered, but invites others who may want to record their experiences with PBB to participate. Brittany and I have done a co-presentation for the state legislature and (a few weeks before COVID restrictions, did a symposium at the University of Michigan School of Public Health. We both serve on the PBB Advisory Board of Emory University which runs the whole PBB health follow-up.
