Twitter Chat: World Environmental Health Day

September 26, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

NACCHO invites local health departments and other partner agencies to take part in the #WorldEHDay Twitter Chat highlighting this year’s World Environmental Health Day on September 26, 2016 at 3:00 pm ET. An initiative created “to recognize the importance of protecting the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink and play in,” this observance is a natural fit for LHDs. Let by the International Federation of Environmental Health (IFEH) and supported domestically by the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA), the 2017 theme focuses on the harmful effects of tobacco use, particularly second and third hand smoke.

The Twitter Chat will feature air quality control expert, David Gilkey, Ph.D., Associate Professor at the Colorado School of Public Health. Dr. Gilkey along with a number of partner agencies including NACCHO, will engage in an in-depth discussion on the impact of second-hand and third-hand smoke. Join the conversation by following along with @nehaorg#WorldEHDay, #ThirdHandSmoke and #SecondHandSmoke. Get ahead of the game by showing your support for #WorldEHDay using this Thurderclap, today.
