Environmental Health Services Listserv
CDC’s Env-Health Listserv was created to enable environmental health professionals to share information on environmental health situations, issues, and topics.
Because the Env-Health Listserv is unmonitored, please follow these guidelines to help keep the Listserv productive and effective:
- Once a subject appears on the Listserv, conduct all subsequent ongoing communication through personal e-mail, not through the Listserv.
- Confine topics to environmental health situations and issues.
- Maintain professional decorum and language in all Listserv communications.
- Do not use the Listserv for commercial purposes.
After you send this e-mail, you will receive further instructions for completing your subscription. If you have any questions about the Listserv, please e-mail email@example.com.
