Since the National Conversation on Public Health and Chemical Exposures Action Agenda, Addressing Public Health and Chemical Exposures, was released last June, many organizations across the United States have reviewed the recommendations outlined therein. The National Conversation Leadership Council held its last meeting in November 2011, and now, as we approach the one-year mark since the Action Agenda’s release, the project is entering a new phase.
National Conversation Network
Beginning in June, a National Conversation Network will serve as a venue for checking in on progress towards implementing the recommendations in the Action Agenda and identifying opportunities for collaboration. The National Conversation Network will meet twice per year by telephone/webinar and is open to anyone working on issues addressed in the National Conversation action agenda. Sign up at www.nationalconversation.us. As noted above, you will be excluded from all future National Conversation communications if you do not sign up for the Network at this time.
