Shining Light on Pollution: LSU SRP Partners with Southern University to Promote Environmental Health Literacy
For the third year in a row, the Louisiana State University Superfund Research Program (LSU SRP) teamed up with Southern University to hold the Shining Light on Pollution Environmental Health Literacy Program. The program covers a wide range of topics related to air pollution and environmental health and also introduces students to different career paths in the environmental health sciences. High school students involved in Southern University's Upward Bound program are recruited to participate in the week-long program. Participants do not need to have any prior experience with research or STEM classes.

The Louisiana State University Superfund Research Program (LSU SRP) hosted three scientists who are experts in lung disease and the dangers of environmentally persistent free radicals (EPFRS) from the University of Queensland in Australia. These LSU SRP collaborators traveled to Baton Rouge to speak at the LSU SRP Open Forum Seminar on EPFRs and Human Health on May 25, 2023.
Louisiana State University Superfund Research Program (LSU SRP) researchers have been working with community members to understand the impacts of air pollution in and around Colfax, Louisiana, since 2020, after local residents organized into the Central Louisiana Coalition for a Clean and Healthy Environment and, citing health issues and other pollution-related concerns, requested assistance from the LSU SRP. After nearly 40 years of living adjacent to the last commercial open burn/open detonation thermal treatment facility in operation in the United States, the community is soon to see a major shift.
