Pollution, Place, and the Unnecessary Tragedy of Premature Death: Lessons for COVID-19

In Louisville, low-income and Black populations living in neighborhoods dealing with decades of industrial pollution are suffering the worst public health outcomes.

Augusta University Master of Public Administration professor Dr. Meares and colleagues conducted a study, soon to be published in Local Environment.

They found that those living within 1.5 miles of EPA Superfund sites or 10,000 feet of the Rubbertown neighborhood have significantly fewer years of healthy life than do other residents of the community, even after accounting for several socio-economic factors.

A message from the Department of Social Sciences:

Dear Social Science Students,

The Augusta University Social Science programs each emphasize the importance of diversity and inclusion. Please know that we support those who advocate for racial justice and stand with those who protest against systemic racism in our nation. Going forward, we will continue promoting the importance of fairness, social equity, diversity, and inclusion through our curriculum, research, and community outreach.

We know that you (our students) also value improving the conditions of our communities, institutions, and the overall nation. We know the last few months have been trying. If our program can do anything to help you continue progression toward completing your degree, please contact me.

If you want to talk with a professional, Augusta University's Student Counseling & Psychological Services is available to help. They are taking virtual appoints. Please see their website and the information below.

https://www.augusta.edu/counseling/

The physical office of Student Counseling and Psychological Services on the Summerville Campus and Health Science campuses are currently closed. However, our department remains open. We are open M-F, 8am to 5pm, and all of our staff are teleworking during this period. For counseling services, please call us at 706-737-1471.

For after-hour emergencies, please call the Georgia Crisis and Access Line at 1-800-715-4225.

Thank you all for your support as we strive to ensure that our programs promote diversity and inclusion.

Again, if we can help in any way, please let us know.

Dr. Kim Davies,
Professor and Chair
