Seattle’s only river is – officially – a toxic waste dump. The Duwamish River is one of the few Superfund sites anywhere in the country extending for miles through the heart of a city. Facing off across the Duwamish are the neighborhoods of South Park and Georgetown – some of Seattle’s poorest and most diverse communities.

I am very excited to be a part of this year's National Health Fellowship program and to be embarking on the reporting for my fellowship project. My goal is to take a look at the health of the communities that live and work along the Duwamish River in Seattle. The Duwamish is not only Seattle’s only river, and the original home of its first Native American people, it is now also an industrial waterway classified as one of the nation’s worst toxic waste sites and one of the few federal Superfund cleanup sites in the country to bisect a major urban area.
