The Northwest Center for Public Health Practice will be presenting its next Hot Topics in Practice webinar: “The Toll of Coal: Health Impacts of Coal Export in the Northwest.” Communities throughout the northwest are considering proposals to build coal export facilities in their towns. These facilities are part of a regional infrastructure to ship millions of tons of coal from Montana and Wyoming, through Idaho, and into ports in Oregon and Washington. If built, these projects will have major impact on human health, state and local economies, environmental sustainability, and quality of life in the region.
