Annual NW Environmental Health Conference 2013
from 08:30 AM to 04:30 PM
The conference will host leading scientists, researchers, and health professionals in the multidisciplinary field of Environmental Health to continue our robust dialogue on the interrelationship between the environment and health and healthcare practices.
The 2013 conference will focus on epigenetics: how environmental factors, particularly chemicals in our environment, can change the expression of our genes, impacting health and disease over generations. Epigenetics is emerging as a crucial topic, especially in pediatric healthcare. The National Institutes of Health plans to make transgenerational impacts of endocrine disruptors a priority for research funding. Other presentations will cover topics as diverse as environmentally driven health disparities and sustainable practices in health care.
Registration opens January 7, 2013
