Join us for a deep dive into these fast-breaking movements and how policy leaders and organizations are collaborating to propel their work for the future.
Join us for a discussion with local experts who are deeply engaged in using citizen science as part of their work. We’ll learn how citizens, environmental advocates, public health professionals and academics can collaborate most effectively to gather data, address environmental challenges and improve public health outcomes.
