Happy Earth Day Eve! With Earth Day in April, it only seems fitting that the Centennial Celebration Featured Department is the Department of Environmental Health Sciences. Here are some highlights of the many events the department planned:
Earlier this month they hosted a Water Symposium discussing ways to reuse water. Dr. Joe Jacangelo, Director of Research at MWH Global and adjunct JHU Faculty; Katie Bell, Water Reuse Practice leader at MWH Global and JHU Visiting Scholar; and Kellogg Schwab, JHSPH Environmental Health Science Professor and Director of the JHU Water Institute presented during the 2 hour symposium.
Last week JHSPH hosted the Pan-American Conference for Alternative Methods from April 12-14.
Appropriately, The Department of Environmental Health Sciences has chosen Earth Day (tomorrow), for their Centennial Service Day, which will take place at the Community Gardens.
To close out the month, The Center for A Livable Future will host “Public Health in Action: Stories from the Local Food System” on April 28. The event will feature five local food system plays – a food czar, an advocate, a clergy-activist, an environmental journalist and a chicken farmer.
