ATSDR Training Sessions: Association Between Illness and Environmental Exposures

Health-care professionals increasingly must diagnose and treat illnesses caused by exposure to hazardous substances. On November 9 and 10, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry will sponsor a training program to inform health professionals about using health assessments to determine the adverse health implications of hazardous exposures. The course is designed for physicians, nurses, and other public health professionals such as epidemiologists, toxicologists, and sanitarians.

The training program will include a 1-day general session to discuss the basic components of the health-assessment process and a 1-day advanced session to address specific case studies of environmental exposure. Participants will receive a syllabus containing instructional material.

The program will be held at the American Public Health Association (APHA) meeting in Atlanta. Applicants may register through the Continuing Education Program, APHA, 1015 15th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20005; telephone (202) 789-5622; fax (202) 789-5661.
