Exploring the dynamic relationship between health and environment
Date:3/23/2009

physicians, ecologists, and others, we can design healthier surroundings and develop protocols to ameliorate current problems."

A free public program on these topics, the Mack Lipkin Man and Nature Series, will be held on the evening of April 2 in the LeFrak Theater. This year's event, It Takes a Planet: Connecting the Health of People and Nature, will be a conversation between Peter Daszak of the Wildlife Trust and the Consortium for Conservation Medicine, Peggy Shepard of West Harlem Environmental Action, Inc., Walter Mugdan of the Emergency and Remedial Response Division, E.P.A., and Julie Burstein of Public Radio International's "Studio 360." The primary topic will be the best ways to respond to environmental and health challengesfrom actions on a global and national scale, to those that each of us can make in our daily lives.

The symposium will take place over two days and is organized into six primary sessions. Talks and discussions are grouped into essential background information, the simultaneous stressors on health and the environment, the practical assessment of costs and benefits when addressing health, the evolution of pathogens, addressing the gaps in current knowledge, and exploring multi-disciplinary solutions. Poster sessions and panel discussions will round out the academic program.

The first session starts by putting health in an environmental context. Carlos Corvaln of the World Health Organization will highlight the global environmental burden of disease and its consequences; Howard Frumkin of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will look at the multiple impacts of decision making in many areasfood, energy, transportationon both health and the environment; Majid Ezzati of the Harvard School of Public Health will outline global evidence-based environmental health risk policies; and Jane Carlton of New York University School of Medicine and Langone Medical Center will highlight the importance of genomi
