Third Annual PEHSU Meeting

August 1, 2017

The 3rd Annual PEHSU Meeting was held on June 29 and 30, 2017 at the EPA Region 8 Headquarters in Denver, CO. On day one, participants heard regional updates from PEHSUs Regions 1-10 in the US and from the Children's Environmental Health Clinic in Canada. Five scientific sessions were held over the course of the two days and offered continuing education credits to participants on topics including Lead in Drinking Water, Marijuana, Arsenic in Rice, PFAS, Wildfires, Reproductive Environmental Health, and Environmental Justice and Community Engagement Issues.

The National Office represented by ACMT and AAP presented the Year 2 Performance Measure data from all 10 regions, the preliminary consultation data from the PEHSU Performance Tracking System, as well as the promotional activities for the PEHSU National Classroom and PEHSU Program as a whole. The recorded scientific sessions will be available in the PEHSU National Classroom in August and will continue to offer CE credits to nurses, physicians, public health professionals and other health professionals.
