An opportunity exists for graduate students to participate in an online/face-to-face course on Ecosystem Approaches to Health, offered by CoPEH Canada. The course is available starting in May. Further information is available in the flyer.
Participants can participate in the full program at UBC, UQAM, or UofGuelph, or participate only in the webinars (which are also available to international students).
As the global electronic waste (e-waste) stream grows, it is becoming increasingly important to understand how exposure to e-waste affects human health. Components used to make electronic devices, such as laptops, cell phones, and televisions, contain a variety of metals and chemicals that can harm health when people are exposed through handling or just living near e-waste streams. NIEHS will work with WHO to raise understanding of the importance of controlling exposures to e-wastes among health practitioners and decision makers.
UQ Researchers are working at the intersection of science, education and policy to better understand and reduce pollution’s impact on children’s health.
