ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH AWARD
For Immediate Release
ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH NETWORKWho & What:
Christopher Allen, founder and former president of Consensus Development Corporation, has been awarded the first Julia Kendall Award for a Fragrance Free Workplace. This award is sponsored by the Environmental Health Network (EHN). The award honors Julia Kendall, an environmental activist who died in 1997 from complications of pesticide exposure.
When & Where:
Barbara Wilkie, a member of the EHN board, said, "We established this award to call attention to the issue of environmental health in the workplace. Most of our members had their first exposures to toxic chemicals while at work and many are now permanently disabled. Fragrances become a significant barrier to employment."

Julia Kendall (1935-1997)
Julia was also well-known for her $8.5 million claim against American Airlines for its practice of spraying pesticides on its passengers. Her claim led to an international policy revision of this practice. Despite her own ill health, Julia was a devoted advocate for people who had been chemically injured. She personally counseled over three thousand people who contacted her with complaints of health problems related to chemical exposures.
