For the past year, the federally funded CAFEH study (Community Assessment of Freeway Exposure & Health) has gathered data on the effects of traffic pollution from I-93 on the health of residents in East Somerville, the Nunnery Grounds, Ten Hills and Mystic Housing, while the area near the Brown School was tested as a “background” area. The study is ongoing, but on Thursday, May 19, at a public meeting, CAFEH will present a mid-study report on both human and environmental data collected in Somerville. The project hopes to use the information to inform key policymakers. ResiStat will keep you informed of the information shared. The most recent CAFEH newsletter is also posted below. When/Where: CAFEH Meeting, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., Mystic Activity Center, 535 Mystic Ave., Somerville. Thursday, May 19. Please RSVP to Lindsay Kephart at email@example.com or call Don Meglio at 617-636-2110.
