COMMUNITY
Emory researchers give local communities data to combat environmental hazards
Atlanta is known as the city of trees, but underneath its green canopy sits an expanse of asphalt that directs rainwater runoff into low-lying westside neighborhoods. Emory's HERCULES Exposome Research Center assists the West Atlanta Watershed Alliance with research on the neighborhoods around polluted Proctor Creek.

 

IMPACT
