Filed under: Education and Grant Opportunities, Events 
June 7 and 8, 2010
This is 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. 
Join us as we:
• Foster a community of nurses engaged in protecting human health and the environment
• Explore policy and legislative opportunities related to environmental health and nursing
• Expand the number of nurse educators committed to incorporating environmental health into existing curricula
• Develop an environmental health research agenda for nurse researchers
• Promote evidence-based, environmental health practices
June 9, 2010
• Nursing Research Agenda: Participate in the development of an Environmental Health Nursing Research Agenda
• Trip to the Hill: Visit policy makers to advocate for chemical policy reform
Note:  Sessions may be added.
The planning committee invites abstracts to be considered for oral and poster presentations.  Abstracts describing research, policy/advocacy, education, or practice issues related to environmental health and nursing are welcome, and abstracts related to the conference theme are particularly encouraged.  Abstracts must be received by midnight EST, February 15, 2010.  For details and forms visit: 
This conference presents a unique opportunity for organizations and vendors to capitalize on exclusive networking opportunities with nurses involved in education, policy, practice, and research.
