The National Conversation on Public Health and Chemical Exposures is a collaborative initiative to identify and prioritize actions for strengthening the public health approach to chemical exposures.
June 26, 2009 in Washington, DC will see a day-long meeting to launch this exciting stakeholder and public involvement initiative.
The meeting will include a plenary session featuring Dr. Howard Frumkin, Director of NCEH/ATSDR as well as other guests. Breakout sessions will allow for discussion of specific issues related to public health and chemical exposures.
The 18 month long National Conversation will offer many opportunities for involvement, including: expert working groups, regional and local public meetings, and web-based discussions.
The resulting action agenda will outline steps for NCEH/ATSDR and other institutions to take to better protect public health from harmful chemical exposures.
