Why Recyle?

Hello everyone, my name is Tonya Herring and I posed the question, “why recycle” in hopes that by the end of my presentation you will be galvanized to be a part of the solution and contribute your efforts to saving our planet.  This presentation is purposed to educate the country at large to include; private citizens, governments, and organizations on why we should collaboratively endeavor to recycle; and make a difference in global warming, air and water pollution, conservation, and energy preservation.   Also, not only does recycling create a salubrious environment, it is a driver of job creation and economic activity.

Say No to the Plastic Bottle

The purpose of this presentation is to increase your knowledge of the environmental health factors which surround the plastic container used for bottled water.  Most Ivy League schools have already begun the process of banning bottled water on their campuses.  I will share with you some key facts about what bottled water does to our ability to manage plastic waste; how plastic influences the taste of water especially if it gets hot (when plastic heats up it emits toxins into the water); and also talk about some of the myths surrounding tap water not tasting good or being unsafe.

Environmental Health (PUBH – 8165 – 1) West Nile Virus PPT

West Nile Virus



Hello, I created this educational PPT in order to update Oklahoma Creek County public health nurses  on some of the latest information and statistics  on West Nile Virus. It is important for public health nurses to have this information as they are in a position to identfy high risk geographical areas for mosquito breeding, educate the public of preventitive measures, and to recommend further resources and health care referrals as needed.

While my targtet audience was Oklahoma  Creek County public health nurses, this updated West Nile Virus information may be utilized for any target audience or individual wanting to know some of the latest West Nile Virus statistics and public health recommendations.

Thank you!

This presentation focuses on interesting “need to know” information related to waterborne disease for United States travelers.  Anyone who travels or knows of others who travel outside the US will find this presentation informative and useful.

  • Waterborne disease is described as any disease that can spread through contaminated water (LMASDHD, 2012; RD, 2012).
  • Cholera is an acute, diarrheal illness caused by infection of the intestine with the bacterium Vibrio Cholerae (CDC, 2011)

Below are three of many important reasons why travelers need to know about Cholera, one of several waterborne diseases!

  1. The World Health Organization (WHO; 2010) reported in 2010 that Cholera affects an estimated 3-5 million people worldwide, and causes 100,000-130,000 deaths a year.
  2. Cholera continues to be both epidemic and endemic in many areas throughout the world (Sack, Sack, Nair, Siddique, 2004).
  3. Effective prevention requires individual and global involvement!

This presentation was created to inform community members, school administrators, and land owners of the benefits and potential risk factors associated with Hydraulic Fracturing.  The benefits of this procedure are hard to ignore.  They include jobs, money, and more cost efficient fuel.  However there are also potential hazards that could effect the health of community members, endanger our environments, and decrease property values.
