…a community meeting will be taking place in East Liverpool, Ohio, to present the preliminary study results, which includes data from the Marietta portion of the study. This meeting will take place on Thursday, July 11, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Kent State University, Slak Shak Meeting Room, 400 East 4th St., East Liverpool, Ohio, 43920. Marietta health study participants are invited to attend.”
