Brownfields are land reuse sites often contaminated by harmful chemicals or redeveloped without proper environmental oversight, such as former gas stations, manufactured gas plants, factories, dry cleaners, and abandoned properties. The training explores the environmental and health risks and social disparities associated with contaminated land properties; key players in land reuse planning and policy; and redevelopment techniques to improve community health. Conference participants will receive an Environmental Health and Land Reuse (EHLR) Certificate upon completion of all five modules (all audiences). Register now to take the next step toward enacting lasting, positive change in areas needing it most.
