What is a site team?

The site team is a work group of individuals with environmental, health, and community expertise who can contribute to the public health assessment process. Members may be from the community, other agencies, and organizations concerned about the site. The main responsibilities of a site team are to help identify and prioritize health topics to be addressed in the public health assessment process; to review and comment on draft documents; and to act as a conduit for information between the site team and the agency or community each member represents.
