Hold the date: April 27, 2019 for the symposium, Educate, Empower and Protect: Our Health and Environment.

This all day event brings together some of the nations leading experts in air pollution and health with a special emphasis on children’s health and development.  Speakers are coming from the Mid-Atlantic Center for Children’s Health and Environment at Georgetown University,  the University of Maryland School of Public Health and the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health. The one day symposium will be a public event aimed to provide clear, unbiased and accurate scientific information for parents, teachers, health care providers and community groups living in the Eastern Panhandle Region of West Virginia and neighboring states so they may be equipped to make evidence-based decisions.
