    Focus:

    Environment Impact on Health


    Description: In honor of Earth Day (April 22), our focus will be on environmental impacts on health and the economy. This is the first of a series on the environment. This month’s focus is on water quality and water and food supply impacts on human health.

     

    Our keynote speaker is Captain Karl R. Deigert, Chair of the grassroots citizens’ ballot initiative “Florida’s Right to Clean and Healthy Waters” (FloridaRightToCleanWater.org). Capt. Deigert, hails from Baltimore, Maryland. After graduating from Pharmacy School in 1985, he relocated to Islamorada, FL. to enjoy his life goals of fishing and diving in paradise. However, in 2016, he recognized severely compromised water quality across the state and founded the nonprofit Lee County Rights of Nature. Working with others in 2020, the Florida Rights of Nature Network was established statewide This led to the formation of the fully grassroots citizens’ ballot initiative “Florida’s Right to Clean and Healthy Waters” (FloridaRightToCleanWater.org).

     

    Information on Earth Day activities as well as the Democratic Environmental Caucus will be provided. In addition, the Biden administration’s support of Veterans Health with the signing of the PACT act, a law that expands VA health care and benefits for Veterans exposed to burn pits, Agent Orange, and other toxic substances, will be discussed.
