• About Center for Environmental Health's Involvement in Woburn

    The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) and the Center for Environmental Health's (CEH) have developed this web site to provide a history of our involvement in the town of Woburn, Massachusetts. On this site we will introduce you to who we are and how we have been involved in Woburn. In addition, you will be able to read the Massachusetts Department of Public Health study on Childhood Leukemia completed in 1997. This study suggests that "the risk of developing childhood leukemia was greater for a child whose mother drank water from contaminated wells while pregnant with the child." We are also in the process of making earlier studies available to you over the internet. However, many of these studies pre-date computer technology. We have been unable to convert these reports into a format viewable by the internet. The staff at MDPH and BEHA are continually updating this site.
