SG-W:/ June Symposium - "Examining Rural Environments for the Health andSafety of Children"

I am forwarding this from another list. I thought some folks on SG-W might
be interested.  Mary Beth

It is still not too late to join us and many environmental health, health
care, land use, and public health professionals for the first Stueland
Summer Symposium in Marshfield, WI on June 12-14, 2001. The title of the
symposium is "Examining Rural Environments for the Health and Safety of
Children". The two-and-one-half day agenda is filled with stimulating
presentations, demonstrations, field trips and discussions examining land
use practices and the consequently environmental exposure to children. A
focus will be on those environmental exposures from the natural, built, and
social environment that both promote and protect rural children.

Keynote speaker is Lynn R. Goldman, M.D. Lynn is a pediatrician and
epidemiologist, is a Professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of
Hygiene and Public Health.  In 1993, Dr. Goldman was appointed by the
President and confirmed by the Senate to serve as Assistant Administrator
for the EPA's Office of Prevention, Pesticides and Toxic Substances in 1993.
In that position, she was responsible for the nation's pesticide, toxic
substances and pollution prevention laws.  Under her watch, EPA expanded
right-to-know under the Toxics Release Inventory and overhauled the nation's
pesticides laws. At EPA she was successful in promoting children's health
issues and furthering the international agenda for global chemical safety.
Lynn will also be receiving the first Stueland Scholar recognition.

In addition representatives from the Children's Environmental Health
Network, Centers for Disease Control, US Department of Agriculture,
Environmental Protection Agency, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Institute
of Medicine's Environmental Health Roundtable, National Children's Center
for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety, University of Wisconsin, and
state/local health and planning departments will be participating.
