My first summer of climbing and hiking reinforced my feeling that I had arrived in some kind of Paradise. Often I would sit on top of some peak in the North Cascades gazing in awe across its vast wild sweep of mountain-tops in every direction, and think to myself, “hey, I could climb one of these every week-end of my life and never know them all…oh what joy!”

This conference will host leading scientists, researchers, and health professionals to continue our robust dialogue on the interrelationship between the environment and health and healthcare practices. The 2013 conference theme is epigenetics: how environmental factors, particularly chemicals in our environment, can change the expression of our genes, impacting health and disease over generations. Epigenetics is a crucial topic, especially in pediatric healthcare. Presentations will also cover a range of topics including environmental justice, environmental toxicants, built environment, and sustainable practices in health care.

Our keynote speaker will be Tracey Woodruff, PhD, MPH, Director of the Program on Reproductive Health & the Environment at the University of California San Francisco and an Associate Professor in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences & Pediatrics. Tracey has done extensive research and policy development on environmental health issues, with a particular emphasis on early-life development.
