NEHA's Third Annual Hill Day

NEHA Board Members met with members of Congress at the Third Annual Hill DayThird Annual Hill Day

The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) hosted its Third Annual Hill Day in Washington, DC, on May 1, 2019. NEHA's board of directors and staff spent the day talking to senators, representatives, and their staff in over 50 offices from both political parties to ensure that the environmental health profession has a voice in major policy decisions.

With the recent reintroduction of the Environmental Health Workforce Act in the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate, Hill Day provided an important opportunity to highlight the value of this legislation to ensure a credentialed environmental health workforce. NEHA board members discussed the importance of having national guidelines so that every state has a credentialed environmental health workforce protecting the health and lives of everyone. 

NEHA is grateful to every member of Congress who took the time to meet with us and discuss environmental health. The day was a great success!

Stay tuned for a full report on the Third Annual Hill Day in the July/August 2019 Journal of Environmental Health.
