On Sunday afternoon, Clean Air Muscatine and the Iowa Physicians for Social Responsibility sponsored a visit from Dr. Yolanda Whyte of Atlanta,  Ga., who gave a presentation titled, “Creating a Healthy Environment.” The presentation, held at Musser Public Library, focused on statistics and how communities can improve their health, especially for children.

Clean Air Muscatine is a local advocacy group whose mission is to help  improve the environment and promote environmental awareness.
