International Congress on Health Effects of Hazardous Wastes

The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), in collaboration with the Emory University School of Public Health and the Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics, will hold the first International Congress on the Health Effects of Hazardous Waste. The congress, which will be cosponsored by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the Environmental Protection Agency, will be held May 3-6, 1993, in Atlanta.

This congress will provide an opportunity for biomedical and environmental scientists, epidemiologists, physicians, risk assessors, and toxicologists to evaluate and disseminate state-of-the-art information about the human health effects associated with exposure to hazardous waste. Topics will include populations at risk, exposure assessment (including environmental measurements, modeling, and use of biologic markers), health effects resulting from exposure to toxic substances (including toxicologic studies, health-effects studies, diagnostic strategies, and risk analysis), mitigation strategies, risk communication, technology and information transfer, health implications of emerging technologies, gaps in data, and research needs.
