Cumulative Health Impacts Analysis (CHIA)

The Duwamish Valley Cumulative Health Impacts Analysis (CHIA)

The Cumulative Health Impacts Analysis examines a range of disproportionate health exposures and impacts affecting people in the Duwamish Valley and makes recommendations to promote an equitable and protective river cleanup that protects the health of all residents.  Published in 2013 by DRCC/TAG and Just Health Action, this report continues to inform community projects and priorities.
