National Conversation on Public Health and Chemical Exposures

Filed under: Advocacy, Events

Supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), the National Conversation on Public Health and Chemical Exposures is a unique and unprecedented collaboration of federal, state, and local, and tribal government agencies; concerned citizens nationwide; community, faith-based, and nonprofit organizations; scientists, researchers, and leaders in public health and environmental issues; and, representatives of private industry. Everyone who cares about the issues of chemical safety and public health is encouraged to lend his or her voice and learn more here: http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/nationalconversation/.
The goal of this National Conversation is to develop an effective, efficient, fair, and collaborative action agenda with recommendations for strengthening our nation’s efforts to protect the public from harmful chemical exposures.
The National Conversation is hosting the first of three facilitated Web dialogues to begin gathering public input from Monday, April 5 through Wednesday, April 7. Two virtual conversations will be conducted each day, and the public is invited to participate in one or all six. And because the National Conversation is committed to transparency, archives of all conversations will be available online for public review for five years. Our agenda for the first Web dialogue includes:
•         Monday, April 5: “Understanding the National Conversation” and “Achieving the National Conversation’s Vision”
•         Tuesday, April 6: “Involving People in Decisions that Affect their Health” and “Improving Research & Information Collection & Management”
•         Wednesday, April 7: “Preventing Harmful Exposures” and “Responding Effectively to Exposures.”
