Health and Health Care Forum with host Roberta Hall

A conversation with Diana Rohlman concerning the Superfund site, Black Butte Mine, near Cottage Grove, Oregon. We talk about this now-abandoned mercury (cinnabar) mine and some of the toxic remnants left behind, together with the health risks the mine poses. The history of the mine, typical of many other from the 19th and 29th centuries, goes from full-steam ahead, to abandonment, and back again several times. The community wanted this project and many have worked there or have family members who did. Diana Rohlman is the Outreach Coordinator at the OSU Environmental Science Health Center and works with other scientists, with a local school and its principal, and with the community in Cottage Grove.
