Northwest Nature and Health Symposium
Nature and Health illuminates the connections between nature and human health and well-being. We work with the community and decision makers to translate our findings into programs and policies that promote equitable engagement with nature.
Each year, we host a symposium to bring together researchers, community members, and decision makers to learn about new discoveries, discuss new policies and programs, and advance partnerships.
Our 2024 symposium features, 8 expert speakers, 1 community panel, and a student poster session.
