PEPH Annual Meeting: Communication Research in Environmental Health Sciences – Environmental Health Literacy, September 22-24, 2014,  NIEHS, Research Triangle Park, NC … Graphic Credit: NIEHS

This year the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is focusing the PEPH meeting on Environmental Health Literacy (EHL).

An added feature this year are Watch Parties, so those not attending the meeting in person can gather with others, watch the meeting presentations, and have discussions. Our SRP will be hosting some Watch Parties for the live streaming (we are unable to watch other presentations live due to the time difference).  All are welcome!

Use or follow hashtag #EHL2014

Recordings are available for viewing between September 25 and September 30. Please contact Naomi Hirsch if you are interested in viewing a recording and the time you are available.  Choose from any of the presentations listed below.
