Checking the flow of community water fluoridation

Facilitator TBD

REgister now

Fluoride is an element that naturally occurs in soil, oceans and freshwater.  In many drinking water supplies the level of fluoride is carefully monitored to fall within a range deemed healthy by the EPA and CDC. This is accomplished by either adding or removing fluoride. In ALL drinking water supplies fluoride is monitored and extracted, if necessary, to ensure it doesn't exceed a safe amount.

Why attend this Conversation? It’s a night out with meaning.  Connect with others in your community, discuss facts and opinions and find common ground.

Stay tuned for more!
