2024 SEHD Annual Meeting

When:  Apr 15, 2024 from 06:00 PM to 08:00 PM (ET)

The State Environmental Health Directors (SEHD) are an organized peer group within ASTHO whose membership includes environmental health leadership from U.S. state and territorial health agencies (S/THAs). Originally convened in 2005, the SEHD peer group strives to advance the practice of environmental public health with the following goals:

  • Develop a national identity and unified voice for state environmental public health practice;
  • Enhance relationships and communication among states and partners; and
  • Provide a forum for discussing key and emerging environmental health issues.

The SEHD Annual Meeting serves as an opportunity for state environmental health leaders to connect with counterparts in other states and territories, share experiences, and take a broad view of environmental health issues across the nation. Federal and NGO partners are also invited and encouraged to actively participate in the meeting. Through facilitated discussion, participants will set priorities for the upcoming year and strategize ways to build capacity to address common environmental health challenges. This year’s annual meeting will be an in-person event, held in Denver. If you are unable to attend, you may send an attendee in your place. Please share their name and email with environmentalhealth@astho.org.
