Her goal was to help citizens and communities understand exposure and health effects of toxins in their environment. “No one was looking out for community groups,” Subra says about the early days of her company. Located in New Iberia, Louisiana, Subra Company offers technical assistance and provides the science. These services are needed for communities to get the attention of the industries responsible for the pollution, as well as the agencies responsible for protecting public health and the environment.“I’ve never had to turn anybody down,” Subra says. “They may have to wait a few days, but if they ask, I will do what I can to help them.” Subra and her husband try to carve out time for lunch together a couple of times during the week. On the day of this interview, while she was taking a lunch break, Subra received a call from Mr. Woody in False River. He lives near a meander of the Mississippi River and talks to Subra about the inappropriate sewage discharge in the river. Another call comes in from a woman who lives in Iberia Parish. She tells Subra that she and her neighbor are the only ones in her community who haven’t been diagnosed with cancer.
