3D Print Naloxone Training Mask Project

Leveraging 3-D printing to produce a cost-effective naloxone training kit.  Naloxone Training aligns with the Surgeon General priorities and USPHS Commissioned Corps and Civil Service Engineers at the Food and Drug Administration have developed a solution increase the availability of naloxone trainings by making the kits more cost-effective.

Lead and Drinking Water

The Lead and Drinking Water Project Group collects information, especially from USPHS staff that have worked with affected communities, on how lead and potentially other drinking water contaminants impact communities and how they are being addressed.  Include both technical (e.g. treatment techniques) and non-technical (e.g. community engagement and buy-in) concerns.

Lead:       CAPT Alex Dailey

By applying a collaborative and disciplined problem-solving approach, and by employing organizational structure that supports their front-line delivery services, USPHS Commissioned Corps Engineers are improving public health and providing models of service that could benefit a wider population.

The objectives of the Project Group are:

  • Understand lead exposure pathways, how they occur, and what their impacts are. Lead in drinking water is only one of several exposure pathways
  • Understand the wider factors associated with lead issues (not just technical problems). For example, how they disproportionately affect disadvantaged populations or how property ownership issues restrict potential solutions.  (Most municipalities do not own the water service lines on the homeowners’ properties).
