Wednesday, February 6, 9:00 am – 10:00 am
Free one-hour teleconference sponsored by the Alaska Collaborative on Health and the Environment.
About the Call:
Nurses are becoming increasingly engaged in environmental health issues including chemical policy reform. They are concerned about preventing diseases of environmental origin, but may lack the expertise to effectively advocate for change. Nurses that are both informed about environmental and public health problems, and empowered to effectively influence policy, can be a powerful force to vastly improve public health.
Presenters Katie Huffling, RN, MS, CNM, Director of Programs at the Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments and Kathy Curtis, executive director of Clean and Healthy New York will provide a brief overview of market and government chemical policies currently being considered, and explore how nurses can utilize advocacy tools to advance public health protections.
