Historical Note

The Love Canal Health Project began in 1980 when the Center for Disease Control asked the University at Buffalo's School of Medicine to collaborate on a project focused on studying the health of the people living around Love Canal. Dr. Michele Hindi-Alexander was Clinical Coordinator of the Love Canal Health Project from 1980-1981, until the project was canceled due to a lack of funding.
