Scholarships are now available for students to attend the Annual Occupational, Environmental, and Public Health Conference in Blaine, Washington, January 5–7, 2012. Free attendance, lodging, and meals are available for students selected to present their research at this year's conference, hosted by the University of Washington, University of British Columbia, and Simon Fraser University.

Oral presentations: One student from each conference-sponsoring university will be selected to present a 15- to 20-minute oral presentation of their research. Students interested in presenting should submit their name, university affiliation, and a 250-word abstract.

Poster presentations: Five students from each conference-sponsoring university will be selected to present a poster of their research. Students interested in displaying a poster should submit their name, university affiliation, poster title, and brief description of poster.

All submissions should be emailed to Karen West, Assistant to the Chair, Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences at klhanson@u.washington.edu. The deadline is Friday, December 9.

A committee of representatives from each school will select student presenters. Those selected will be given lodging (Friday night), meals (lunch and dinner on Friday), and admission to the conference (Friday and Saturday).

This year's conference, Changing Environments and Population Health (US and Canada), will be held at the Semiahmoo Resort from January 5–7, 2012. The gathering is designed to explore cross-border issues in a setting intimate enough to foster discussion among researchers and students.
