CONFERENCE GOAL

Our primary goal is to exchange knowledge and data to further enhance understanding of the role of the environmental health discipline in One Health issues globally. In addition, the conference aims to allow tremendous networking opportunities between EH practitioners with researchers, students, clinicians, educators, policy leaders, and industry partners. Submit an abstract, save the date, and plan to come learn, share, and have fun in Jamaica!
