June 7 -8, 2010 at the University of Maryland School of Nursing

Join us at the first national conference for nurses addressing the relationship between human health and the environment. Learn about the growing movement that is being created by nurses as they “green” their health care institutions, engage in scientific inquiry, integrate environmental health practices into nursing assessments and interventions, and create and support policies that protect human health and the environment.  Come hear about and share in the expanding roles that nurses are taking in the exciting and critical field of environmental health.
Join us as we
• Foster a community of nurses engaged in protecting human health and the environment.
