Children’s Environmental Health Summit
Alaska Community Action on Toxics is organizing a Children’s Environmental Health Summit – the first of its kind in Alaska – on October 5 and 6, 2016 at Alaska Pacific University in Anchorage. The purpose of the summit is to bring together scientists, Alaska Native tribal and community leaders, health care professionals, parents, policy makers, teachers, students, and children’s advocates to discuss the latest science about the health disparities experienced by children of Alaska and the Arctic and to develop recommendations to protect the health of children at the top of the world.
The Summit would benefit from your knowledge and expertise as we develop recommendations for measurable actions that will be taken to improve the health of current and future generations of Alaskan children in the areas of education, policy reform, health care, research, and prevention.
Registration deadline is September 5th. Please visit the website for more details.
