The 19th International Conference of the Pacific Basin Consortium for Environment and Health, held Aug. 29 to Sept. 1 on Jeju Island, South Korea, brought together global experts to discuss advancing environmental health and translating scientific knowledge to action under a changing climate.

The conference was sponsored in part by the NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP). SRP has a longstanding relationship with the Pacific Basin Consortium (PBC) that allows SRP staff and grantees to facilitate PBC goals and engage in cooperative research to develop solutions for pressing environmental health challenges facing the Pacific Basin region and beyond.

Stephania Cormier, Director of the Louisiana State University SRP Center presented about air pollution and children’s health. Another talk, by Berhard Hennig, of the University of Kentucky SRP center, highlighted the role of diet in mitigating risks from environmental factors.
