Project Title & Description
Women's Health & Env. Network
This grant will provide $12,000 in Federal funds to the Women's Health and Environmental Network (WHEN) to develop a pilot to reduce pharmaceutical pollution in waterways in the Philadelphia region. Through a partnership with the Philadelphia Water department, adult care facilities, and a reverse distributor, this pilot will serve as a vehicle for raising the target audience's issue awareness while promoting environmentally friendly consumer behaviors and environmental stewardship. The primary environmental goal is to protect water, specifically source water, by preventing disposal of medications upstream before water treatment.
