Before working for the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA), I was in graduate school in Buffalo, New York for two years. I was getting my MPH in environmental health and had a particular interest in air quality. Learning about the Tonawanda Coke Project is what sparked this interest.

Spoiler alert: contrary to popular belief, Victorian mogul Thomas Crapper did not invent the modern flush toilet...but if he didn't, then who did? It's time to explore the real history of this ubiquitous bathroom necessity, and how it evolved into the porcelain flushers we all know and love today.
Join New York Adventure Club as we explore the long and fascinating history of toilets, from rudimentary systems used by close-knit communities in ancient Mesopotamia to today's high-tech plastic or porcelain thrones.
Have you ever wondered what happens after you flush the toilet? Once you pull that lever, anything inside your porcelain bowl goes on a wild ride through miles upon miles of pipes and tunnels until it reaches its final destination — one which isn't where you think.
Join New York Adventure Club for a deep dive into the intricate systems of pipes and water tunnels that create our sewer systems, which we humans so often clog up in our daily lives.
Climate change is affecting environmental health—the quality of air, food, and water in the communities where we live, work, and play. NEHA recognizes climate change as a world-wide environmental health problem that has health and safety impacts to individuals and communities. Environmental health professionals improve and protect the public’s health and create and sustain healthy communities. It is NEHA’s responsibility to support the capacity of environmental health professionals to address the health impacts of climate change with risk assessment, adaptation, and mitigation planning.
