Public Health Meeting September 12 - 14 at the National Center in
Reston.  This will be a forum to foster collaboration between the
Public Health and Earth Science Communities, which can lead to
solutions for existing and emerging environmental health problems.
The intended audience is organizations and individuals interested in
environmental and earth science factors affecting human health.  This
meeting is designed to provide a broad forum for discussion, bringing

pathogen contaminant exposure by drinking water; (3) human
consumption of bioaccumulative contaminants; (4) pathogen exposure

and (6) animals as sentinels of human health, along which the USGS
public health research is aligned.
