How Worried Should We Be About Arsenic?
Lewiston Auburn Senior College
Well Water and Healthful Aging in Maine: A Collaboration between University of New England and Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory.
Dr. Jane Disney will fill us in about her multi-year effort to identify contaminants in home well water and provide critical education to homeowners and their families. Dr. Disney is an Associate Professor of Environmental Health at MDI Biological Laboratory. In addition, she directs the activities of the Community Environmental Health Laboratory.
Jane has recently joined with Dr. Tom Meuser, Director of the UNE Center for Excellence in Aging & Health, to examine health impacts of arsenic and other contaminants on health in adults aged 55+ years in Maine. He also coordinates the UNE Legacy Scholars Program through which adults support applied research on aging, complete annual surveys on health, and join with students in shared learning and scholarship. Participants will learn about their preliminary findings and receive an invitation to join in this research, which includes free home tap water testing.
