Navy hosts open house to discuss Naples health study By Lisa M. Novak and Sandra Jontz Stars and Stripes European edition May 7, 2009NAPLES, Italy — Navy officials hosted the first of two open houses Wednesday, providing information on findings from the Naples Public Health Evaluation to the handful of attendees who trickled in.
