This week the Alaska chapter of the National Environmental Health Association will be meeting in Anchorage for their annual education conference. This happens every year with sanitarians, Public Health Service, health clinic and environmental inspection workers gathering for three days. There are often opportunities to test for certification as a Registered Environmental Health Specialist or Healthy Homes Specialist (but this year that offering has been postponed.
Cooperative Extension has presentations in Emergency Energy/Food and Lead Ammo Education. The event is very reasonable and covers topic relative to rural as well as urban concerns. If you have the next couple days off you might take a look online at Alaska Environmental Health Association (https://sites.google.com/site/aehatest/) and possibly join some of the presentations. The cost is low and company is stimulating!
