Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Health Tracking Network
HI all:

Here's another story from ENS about the proposed environmental health 
tracking system.  There is a companion bill in the House to go along 
with the Reid/Cinton Senate bill.

I haven't looked closely at the bills or the proposed system, but I do 
know that this is an idea many people have advocated for a long time and 
something like it is sorely needed.


Legislators Endorse Health Tracking Network 

WASHINGTON, DC, March 21, 2002 (ENS) - A bipartisan group of lawmakers 
has introduced legislation to monitor chronic diseases and their 
potential environmental connections. Physicians for Social 
Responsibility (PSR) and other environment and public health 
organizations applauded the move. 

"This legislation begins a new era in public health," said PSR executive 
director and CEO Dr. Robert Musil. "By committing to tracking chronic 
diseases and their environmental links, we are taking the first steps to 
curbing these killers before they strike."
