Discussion: 

The CNN timeline chronicles the Flint MI water crisis with lead, bacterial contamination, and cases of Legionnaires disease after the city of Flint made a water source change.

A. Discuss the topic addressed in the timeline and video.  Do you agree or disagree with the points made in the documentaries and why? How did you perceive the information presented- be specific? Could different points have been covered in an alternative manner and how? Does the FSW College community have an obligation to address issues like water quality or issues in healthcare? Discuss any current water related issues that have health implications here in SWFL. Support your position.

B. Consider whether SWFL water systems have similar issues related to quality – not just lead. Consider that not all water sources are city/ county provided.  

  • What would you do to become active in discussing the facts with your local FL state legislator?  What points would you make related to public/ community healthcare on this topic in SWFL.
  • What five (5) factual points will you make as a practicing PHN related to the outbreak of Legionnaires’’ disease or another water borne illness.
  • Why would you make these five? Provide supportive data and references for your facts
