From science to policy – Fifth annual conference of the Environment and Health Fund (EHF)

The EHF is an NGO with a mandate to enhance capacity and capabilities in the field of environmental health in Israel. EHF’s goals are to broaden the scope and expertise of academic research, to improve training in environmental health, and to forge a community of interdisciplinary environmental health researchers. EHF seeks to improve expertise within government and the ability to develop evidence-based policies in response to environmental health challenges, along with improved coordination and cooperation among government ministries. EHF also works to raise awareness, disseminate accurate, objective information, and promote wider professional and public interest in, and knowledge of current issues of environmental health.

EHF’s Annual Conference is to be held in Jaffa (near Tel Aviv) on Monday, 31 December 2012. The oral presentations and the posters will highlight the latest Israeli research, while the general aims of the conference focus on bridging the gap between science and policy. Keynote speakers include Prof. Jonathan Samet from the University of Southern California and Prof. Andrea Gore from the University of Texas, Austin. The conference will be held in English and for scientists from overseas who wish to attend the conference, registration fees will be waived.
