3231.0 International Perspectives on Water and Public Health: Public Health session, organized by Elsevier and RSPH

Monday, November 9, 2009: 12:30 PM
This Session, sponsored by Elsevier and the international peer-reviewed journal, Public Health, presents an eclectic array of viewpoints on the global importance of water to population health. We bring three eminent and entertaining speakers from the UK to this annual Public Health APHA session. Each speaker will share his or her unique perspectives on this conference theme: Pamela Taylor will explain the relevance of the Water industry to public health internationally, including its political influence; George Morris will share insights into the contemporary, post-traditional, environmental health impact of water; and Ros Stanwell-Smith probably knows more than most people about the history of public toilets and the very real public health risks of modern day society ignoring the need for this essential facility.
Session Objectives: Define the critical worldwide role of the Water Industry in protecting and promoting population health. Discuss the role of water in a newly emerging model of environmental health. Describe the dangers to population health and well-being associated with ignoring the lessons learned from the past.
