Virtually attend a public policy meeting on any environmental health topic (including infectious disease!) and summarize your experience. Such meetings may include a City Council meeting in a city, a School Board meeting in a local school district, or an agency public meeting held by an agency that addresses some exposure via air, water, food or soil. Virtual attendance at a national or regional meeting may be considered on a case-by-case basis; please check with instructor. Prepare a 3-4 page report that summarizes your experience and includes the following topics:
Nature, location and timing of meeting
A description of items covered by the meeting
Stakeholders that are impacted by what was decided at the meeting
Stakeholders that attended the meeting
Nature of public comments that were voiced or presented at the meeting
Explain what you learned from this experience and whether you recommend it to others. Explain your rationale.
