Global Environmental Health Day 2017

Friday, September 15, 2017


NIEHS invites you to its second annual Global Environmental Health Day- "Global community empowerment through community-engaged research"

Global Environmental Health (GEH) research addresses pressing environmental health problems and aims to improve the lives of the most vulnerable populations, both in the United States and around the world. GEH Day will serve as an opportunity to bring together NIEHS staff and RTP area researchers, students and organizations to explore GEH research in the Triangle area and areas for collaboration and future work. This year's speakers will emphasize community engaged research efforts and successes.

Meeting Agenda

An Agenda (1MB) is available.

Sustainability at GEH Day

Our institute has made great strides in becoming more sustainable. Your cooperation in engaging in sustainable practices at our institute during your visit will go a long way in supporting the mission of our institute while protecting human health and the environment.

Some things you can support:

  • At lunch and during breaks please compost waste or recycle containers in the cafeteria.
  • If you'd like, please bring a reusable drink container.
  • Carpool to the event.
  • Return lanyards at the end of the day for reuse.
  • We will post the agenda in several key locations rather than printing.
