The Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments (ANHE) recently sponsored a national conference, Our Environment, Our Health a Nurses Call to Action.  Several nationally recognized experts in the field of environmental health gave permission for their presentations to be webcast during the conference.  These stellar presentations generated enthusiastic accolades from conference participants.

ANHE is making those webcasts available to you and your colleagues for viewing at no charge.  Please take a moment to let us know if these presentations were of value to you by sending a message to Katie Huffling at

The Alliance of Nurses for a Healthy Environment is a new organization that convenes individual nurses and representatives of nursing organizations interested in addressing environmental health issues.   Using the blueprint articulated in the Institute of Medicine report, Nursing Health and the Environment, ANHE has developed a strategic plan for the integration of environmental health into nursing education, practice, research, and policy/advocacy work.

Any nurse who is interested in environmental health is welcome to participate in ANHE’s activities and work groups.   For more information please go to or send a message to
