Ecohealth is a field that strives for "sustainable health of people, wildlife and ecosystems by promoting discovery, understanding and transdisciplinarity" (IAEH). The growth in interest and scholarly engagement with ecohealth is demonstrated by the strong communities of practice, groups and networks that have developed, by institutional uptake by large organizations such as the Pan-American Health Organization and through the continued development of the EcoHealth journal and International Association of Ecology & Health (IAEH).
Three main themes have been put forward for EcoHealth 2014 Conference:
The University of Washington welcomes you to the 26th Annual International Society for Environmental Epidemiology Conference - From Local to Global: Advancing Science for Policy in Environmental Health. The meeting will be held in Seattle, Washington, USA on August 24-28th, 2014.
We invite specialists in the field of measurement, dosimetry, exposure and risk assessment of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in the working and living environment, scientists studying biological and adverse health effects of EMF, developing exposure limits and legislation, epidemiologists and specialists in social sciences promoting communication strategies in the field of EMF prevention of workers and general population. Different stakeholders are welcome as well for wide discussion of public concern about EMF human exposure.
