Jan 24 Webinar: Building an Environment of Health Security

From hurricanes and wildfires to water contamination and pipeline breaches, there is no shortage of natural and man-made disasters that can affect health. On January 24th, join environmental health and health security experts for a highly interactive conversation about the environmental health impacts of disasters and the safeguards in place to protect against those effects.

Panelists will share experiences from recent real-world responses and discuss the state of U.S. environmental health protections, highlighting key roles for environmental and public health, health care, private sector partners, and community-based organizations. The webinar will also discuss how the environmental health workforce is addressing current challenges and what’s next for the field.
