OPHA hosting a 4 part webinar - introduction to envrionmental assessments and role for public health

Hi Everyone, wanted to call attention to a webinar on Environmental Assessments starting tomorrow, put on by the OPHA. This webinar is a 4-part webinar series to provide public health professionals with an introduction to the function of EAs, how the process works, why public health should contribute, and how to provide effective input. The content will speak to both Class and Individual EAs and will provide case studies that illustrate successful public health participation in the EA process.

 

The first guest presenter, Greg Jenish, from the Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks, will share why EAs are important in the public health sector and what kinds of projects require an EA. Presetnation is tomorrow (Oct 24) at 12:00 EST.
