Global Environmental Health Day 2017

NIEHS invites you to its second annual Global Environmental Health Day- "Global community empowerment through community-engaged research"
Global Environmental Health (GEH) research addresses pressing environmental health problems and aims to improve the lives of the most vulnerable populations, both in the United States and around the world. GEH Day will serve as an opportunity to bring together NIEHS staff and RTP area researchers, students and organizations to explore GEH research in the Triangle area and areas for collaboration and future work. This year's speakers will emphasize community engaged research efforts and successes.

Security on the NIEHS Campus
This meeting is being held on the NIEHS Campus, in Building 101. A photo ID is required for everyone to enter the campus. You will show your ID at the gate and then again when you check in at the security desk. A list of registered guests will be given to security to ease the process. Tightened security at all federal facilities means you will need to walk through a metal detector and your belongings will be run through an x-ray scanner. Please allow an extra 15-30 minutes to clear security when you arrive to assure a timely start to the conference. We appreciate your patience.
If you have a federal employee ID badge, please be sure to bring it with you as this will speed up the security process for you.
