International Congress on the Health Affects of Hazardous Waste

The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry will sponsor the first International Congress on the Health Effects of Hazardous Waste during May 3 through May 6, 1993, in Atlanta. The objective of the congress is to promote the exchange of findings and recommendations about human exposure to and health effects resulting from hazardous waste.

Presentations and discussions will focus on 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), risk communication, technology and information transfer, health implications of emerging technologies, gaps in data, and research needs.

Additional information is available from Howard Frumkin, M.D., M.P.H., Emory University School of Public Health, telephone (404) 727-3697; fax (404) 727-8744.
