AN INTERNSHIP WITH THE U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY IN CINCINNATI, OHIO
Abstract (Summary)AN INTERNSHIP WITH THE U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY IN CINCINNATI, OHIO by Jane E. Ice My internship was served between May 9, 2000 and November 14, 2000 at the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Research and Development, National Risk Management Research Laboratory, Technology Transfer and Support Division, Technology Transfer Branch, in Cincinnati, Ohio. The projects of the internship included researching and developing a Risk Communication Digest for the EPA and other environmental/public health agencies to use as a risk management tool, developing a drinking water quality index as part of a risk communication “toolkit” within the U.S. EPA’s Environmental Monitoring for Public Access and Community Tracking (EMPACT) program, and becoming an active member of the U.S. EPA’s Environmental Excellence Team (EET). The EET’s goal is to bring EPA-Cincinnati employees together to: (1) examine environmental issues associated with the way we do business in our EPA workplace, (2) strive to make all employees cognizant of the impact of their day-to-day actions, (3) recognize environmental excellence, and (4) make recommendations for action to management.
