Each year the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health’s North West Region sponsor a place at the CEHA’s annual education symposium. In order to obtain this sponsorship, applicants had to be a member of the CIEH and apply to the region’s International Committee. The applicant selected, who was the unanimous decision of the panel, was Graeme Mitchell – the programme leader for he BSc (Hons) Environmental Health at CPH. This event provides an excellent opportunity to gain an insight into some the global Environmental Health issues that exist, which can then inform the degree programme. It also provides an excellent networking opportunity for the CPH to build upon its links in the USA.
The event will be held in Oakland, California in March 2016.
