Environmental Health Indicators: Bridging the Chasm of Public Health and the Environment, Workshop Summary
The charge for speakers and participants was to take a critical look at a variety of potential indicators of environmental health status, examine the proposed calls for a national environmental health monitoring system that would expand current human exposure monitoring and health surveillance efforts, foster a dialogue on the benefits and limitations of a national environmental health monitoring system, and discuss the steps needed to create this system.
