Free Webcast and Remember Your Voice is Needed

Good Evening Neighbor:

I have returned today from a satellite forum on Toxic Mold  - so much to do and so little time for all of our neighbors who recently experienced flooding.  I want to remind you about your moment to speak this Wednesday at the National Conversation Listening Session - see below for details.  Also, I am sending you a link for a free webcast of the keynote speakers at the National Conference on Public Health and the Environment.  I am especially interested in hearing Tuesday morning's speeches - see that link as well for details.  I hope to see as many as possible on Wednesday!!!

Your neighbor,


National Conversation Public Listening Session
National Conversation Listening Session will take place on Wednesday, October 28, 2009 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm in the Athens Room of the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel (Sheraton Atlanta Hotel / 165 Courtland Street NE / Atlanta, GA 30303).


Conference participants and interested members of the public can attend this open, facilitated discussion to exchange ideas and explore issues related to the National Conversation. Potential discussion topics include the National Conversation structure and process; lessons learned from the nation's historical approach to public health and chemical exposures; the nation's current shortcomings, gaps, and redundancies; and high priority options for better protecting the public from harmful chemical exposures. NCEH/ATSDR staff, RESOLVE staff, and others involved in the National Conversation project will engage in the discussion and collect participant input. This event is free and open to the public.

As Margaret Mead once said:

Never underestimate the power of a few committed people to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
