Notices to Readers National Minority Health Conference

The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry will sponsor, and CDC will cosponsor, the National Minority Health Conference, "Focus on Environmental Contamination," December 4-6, 1990, in Atlanta. Members of the scientific and environmental communities will address the impact of hazardous substances in the environment on minority populations.

The conference will focus on 1) demographics--special problems in determining exposure of minority populations to hazardous substances in the environment; 2) health perspectives--factors such as nutritional status, lifestyle, and socioeconomic influences that may cause exposure to hazardous substances to affect minority populations disproportionately; and 3) health communication and health education--effectiveness of public health messages for minority populations about preventing exposures to hazardous substances.

Registration information is available from the Conference Coordinator, Equity Associates, Inc., P.O. Box 296, Knoxville, TN 37901; telephone (615) 688-0999.
