Newsletter #1
January 12, 2013

Greetings,

The University of Washington School of Public Health is pleased to send you our first newsletter for the 26th Annual International Society for Environmental Epidemiology Conference - From Local to Global: Advancing Science for Policy in Environmental Health. The meeting will be held in Seattle, Washington, USA on August 24-28th, 2014. Updates on this meeting will be sent regularly and can also be found on our conference website: www.isee2014.org

You are receiving this email because you are an ISEE current or former member or attended a recent ISEE meeting. We apologize for any cross-posting. Please share this email with others who might be interested in attending our meeting so that they may request to join our electronic mailing list to receive these newsletters.

While we have several members already involved with planning the Scientific Program, we would like to extend an invitation to all for additional members of our Scientific Committee. We especially welcome volunteers from outside North America and Western Europe or whose scientific area is outside of the most commonly represented topics at ISEE meetings. Committee members will work with the committee to review and rank submitted abstracts for symposia, oral and/or poster presentations. Please email isee2014@uw.edu to request to join a committee, and provide a summary of your area of expertise/interest.
