The conference will host leading scientists, researchers, and health professionals in the multidisciplinary field of Environmental Health to continue our robust dialogue on the interrelationship between the environment and health and healthcare practices.  

This year we will focus on environmental chemical contributors to obesity and diabetes and explore how such health disparities may arise, in part, because of different levels of exposures to chemicals of concern.
