'Green' Conference Focuses on Health Care

Raising awareness among health care practitioners, school professionals, students and the general community about environmental health will be one of many topics discussed at a free conference April 27, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the School of Nursing.

The "Greening Health Care" conference is designed to engage students and professionals about environmental health issues, provide strategies for safe and healthy work, school, play and home environments, and to strengthen the ongoing community building already happening in environmental health.

Speakers will include: Dr. Linda McCauley, dean and professor of Emory’s Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing; Dr. Anne Turner-Henson, professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) School of Nursing; Dr. Leslie Rubin, co-director of Emory’s Southeast Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit; and Ciannat Howett, Emory’s director of sustainability initiatives.

Registration for the conference is required as seating will be limited.

The conference supports Emory’s sustainability initiatives and will be held during off-peak commute hours so Emory’s alternatively fueled shuttle is the recommended form of transportation. Additionally, breakfast and snacks will be served featuring local and organic items. Recycling and composting will be offered and conference materials will be made available online.
