State Breast Cancer Coalition Hosts Educational Forum on Water Quality Research

Water Price Set To RiseHYANNIS – The Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition will host an educational forum for state legislators on the need for water quality research today.

The purpose of the forum is to discuss the Silent Spring Institute’s water quality research on hormone disruptors and other water quality contaminants on Cape Cod and priority areas for extending the Institute’s water quality research into other parts of the Commonwealth.

“This program is specifically geared to educate our state representatives and state senators in Massachusetts to inform them, to educate them about the importance of water quality throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts including Cape Cod,” said Cheryl Osimo, with the Institute and Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition.

Featured speakers will be Dr. Laurel Schaider, a research scientist at the Institute who leads the Institute’s water quality research, and Representative Paul K. Frost.

A number of state senators and representatives will be co-hosting the informational forum but no members of the Cape delegation were listed as co-hosts for the event.

Osimo said they will be discussing the findings and research that Institute researchers have been conducting on the Cape.

“It’s because of our state representatives and state senators in Massachusetts that we were able to do this research on Cape Cod and it’s our hope that we will be able to continue to build upon the research that we’ve been doing on Cape Cod since the early 90s,” said Osimo.
