NIEHS invited the public to its fourth Global Environmental Health Day – "Science at the Cutting Edge of Global Environmental Change and Health" held virtually on July 1, 2020. Speakers discussed work related to climate change, heat, health, and community involvement. There were two panel presentations with two keynote presentations: Dr. Howard Frumkin in the morning session and Dr. Kristie Ebi in the afternoon session. Video of the event is now available on the NIEHS webpage and YouTube.
NIEHS identifies Global Environmental Health (GEH) as a part of its strategic themes, recognizing that because environmental health problems cross national boundaries, conducting studies around the world benefits not just those in areas being studied, but all people who suffer from the same or related environmental health problems.
