Love Odetola, PHE Ph.D. candidate, recently appeared on Fox 8 News for her work with UNCG’s Center for Housing and Community Studies.
Beginning in 2019, Odetola worked with the team to collect water samples and install water filters in homes located in southwest High Point. Those samples came back with levels of chromium, lead and mercury higher than US-EPA drinking water standards. The goal is to expand testing to more higher and lower income neighborhoods to compare, letting people know what’s in the water and how to clear it.
Ms. Odetola is actively practicing the Department of Public Health Education’s vison, “Promote Health. Engage Communities. Change Lives!”
