Walworth County will be hosting a training on clandestine drug labs in April. The course is free and is designed to help first responders and public health understand the processes used to make meth (and other clandestine drugs), the health impacts, and what goes into responding to the lab.
Have you ever wanted to attend NEHA, but did not have the ability or resources? WEHA offers annually a stipend for one member to attend the NEHA Annual Educational Conference (AEC). This is an ideal opportunity for any environmental health professional to attend a national conference. As NEHA reports, the 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.
The next NEHA AEC is in Anaheim, California on June 25 -28, 2018. Click here for more information and how to apply.
