A recent  survey  by a national public health organization shows that three out of four Americans say they or a close family member have lived in a community where one or more environmentally related problems were a cause of a health problem. 

What does widespread public interest in the links between health and environment mean for health care professionals?  For environmental professionals? For faculty who teach them? Are we prepared for the questions we will be asked? Can we communicate effectively with patients, students, and colleagues about risk and causation?  Join us as we explore these issues at a conference on environment and health on April 5 and 6, 2001 in Columbia. 


The conference is designed to bring together practitioners from both health and environmental professions, in order to establish communication networks, share knowledge, and identify areas for future work.  Technology and tools to assist practitioners will be demonstrated both in a conference session and through exhibits. Use the link below to see the draft agenda. 

Registration fees include a lunch and (cash bar) reception on the 5th, a continental breakfast on the 6th and materials.   To obtain the early registration fee of  $75/$30 for students, register by March 26, 2001.  After March 26, 2001, fees increase to $100/$40.  Use the link below to obtain a printable registration form, which also includes information on the conference hotel.
