NEHA 2017 Annual Educational Conference & Exhibition

Thank you to all the attendees, presenters, exhibitors, and sponsors who attended the AEC in Grand Rapids, Michigan this year! 

More than 900 environmental health professionals attended the conference to discuss the latest topics in the field, and learn best practices from their peers.

Highlights from 2017:

Michigan State Representative Brenda Lawrence spoke to attendees about environmental health legislation.

Many sessions were standing room only, and covered topics such as marijuana edibles, a live tattoo demonstration, and tools for practitioners.

Attendees from around the world presented on international environmental health issues that the profession must address in the years ahead.

Enjoy this recap of the 2017 AEC.


Save the Date!

The NEHA AEC is so much more than a conference. It is the nexus for environmental health training, education, networking, and advancement. It is the event environmental health professionals attend to acquire practical and real-world information and expertise. It is the event from which environmental health professionals leave trained, motivated, inspired, and empowered to further advance their organizations and themselves. We hope to see you at the 2018 AEC in Anaheim, California June 25-28.
