NW Nature & Health Symposium 2019
WhenWednesday, Oct. 30, 2019, 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Description

We invite you to the third annual all-day symposium which will explore our common goals and collective strategies related to the human health benefits of contact with nature. We recognize that we must amplify access and equity in all that we do. In this spirit, our sessions focus on equity in nature through decolonizing data, creating intentional community organizations, using nature as a buffer against health disparities, and understanding nature through history, culture, and therapy.

Featuring: J. Drew Lanham, PhD (Clemson University); Patricia Cassidy, HTR; Abigail Echo-Hawk, MA (Urban Indian Health Institute); Hector Olvera, PhD (Oregon Health & Science University); Eve Rickenbaker; Donald A. Rakow, PhD (Cornell); Laura Rumpf, HTR; Amir Sheikh (The Waterlines Project);  Sean Watts, PhD (SM Watts Consulting, LLC); and more to be announced soon!
