In memoriam: Kristin White. (Focus).
In the tragic events of 11 September 2001, we at EHP lost one of our own. Kristin White, a freelance science writer from New York City, was killed in the crash of United Airlines Flight 93 near Pittsburgh. Kristin began writing for EHP in our first year of publication as a monthly journal. Over the years, she illuminated a range of topics for our readership with clarity and conciseness. Of particular note are her investigations into the environmental health effects of the Midwestern floods of 1993, the revamping of the Clean Water and Safe Drinking Water Acts, and the health consequences to soldiers who served in the Persian Gulf War. Kristin was a consummate professional with a passion for environmental issues. We will miss our collaborations with her and her contribution to the environmental health sciences.
