Health Data

Determining Conclusions and Recommendations

Introduction to the Section

Imagine that a public health assessment will be conducted to evaluate possible health threats from a hazardous waste site near your home. The public health assessment was initiated in response to concerns expressed by you and your neighbors about chemicals from the site found in soil in your neighborhood.

You'd probably want to know what to expect after the public health assessment process is completed. Among other things, you might wonder


where you will find results of the public health assessment investigation in your community


how the public health assessment team arrived at conclusions about the health issues at the site


what will be done to protect public health in the community if a health hazard is found


To learn more about conclusions, recommendations, and public health action plans that result from the public health assessment process, click through this section.

Takes about 15–20 minutes.
