Fourth National Environmental Health Conference

On June 20-23, 1989, the Center for Environmental Health and Injury Control, CDC; the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR); and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials will cosponsor the Fourth National Environmental Health Conference. The conference will be held in San Antonio, Texas, and is directed toward federal, state, and local health and environment officials, physicians, and the environmental community.

The theme of the 1989 conference is "Environmental Issues: Today's Challenge for the Future." The conference will address environmental problems that have the greatest importance to public health, review topical scientific findings, and discuss prevention strategies. Plenary sessions will cover radon; medical, municipal, and hazardous waste; air pollution; lead in the environment; and dioxin. Twenty workshops will be held on topics of interest to states, academic institutions, and federal agencies, including health assessments at National Priority List (NPL) and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) sites, emergency responding, radiation, birth defects, risk communication, and indoor air pollution and respiratory disease.
