Webinar: Bridging the Gaps between Environmental Quality and Public Health

September 16th, 2020 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Chesapeake Bay Program’s Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) invites you to join a webinar panel discussion on “Bridging the Gaps between Environmental Quality and Public Health”. The webinar is on September 16th from 1:00pm-3:00pm. Participation is free. Registration is required.

The webinar aims to foster a deeper understanding of the connections between environmental quality and public health. The panel will help us to discover opportunities for professionals and stakeholders in both fields to bridge the gaps and inform each other’s efforts for positive change.

The Citizens Advisory Committee is a group of appointed residents throughout the Chesapeake Bay Watershed that advise the Chesapeake Bay Executive Council (Regional Governors, DC Mayor, EPA and Chesapeake Bay Commission) on all aspects of the Chesapeake Bay restoration effort. The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay is honored to provide staffing and logistical support to the volunteers of the CAC.
