Twitter Chat – What’s in Your Water: The State of Water and Our Health

August 30 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Every year in the US, as many as 900,000 people fall ill and 900 die from waterborne diseases. Waterborne illnesses cause an estimated 40,000 hospitalizations each year at a cost of $970 million annually. Two out of five Americans rate their quality of water as poor. So, what’s going on here? And what can we do about it?

Starting August 27, World Water Week offers an opportunity to address our most pressing water-related challenges. This year, the Environmental Health Coalition (ANHE is a member) hosts the Twitter Chat “What’s in Your Water: The State of Water and Our Health” to further the discussion. Held on Wednesday, August 30 from 1 to 2 pm EDT, the conversation is part of ANHE’s and the EHC’s advocacy effort to protect public health and the environment.
