CAMP LEJEUNE, NC (AP) — The federal agency leading the health survey about contaminated water at Camp Lejeune is using YouTube to reach out to service members and civilians who worked at the base and their families.
The Daily News of Jacksonville reported that the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry and the Marine Corps have released three public service announcements on YouTube.
Spokeswoman Vivi Abrams says so far, the agency has sent out almost 284,000 surveys and received more than 63,300 responses. The deadline to submit the survey is the end of this year.
The results of the survey are expected to provide statistical information about health effects of exposure to chemical contaminants in the Camp Lejeune drinking water between the 1950s and 1980s.
