Dear CHE Partners,
We want your ideas! We’re in the process of evaluating various aspects of CHE’s services and initiatives and generating potential new ones. Given we are indeed a collaborative partnership, your innovative suggestions as to what CHE might do (within our mission, below) to address gaps or needs you see in the environmental health field would be genuinely welcome.
To facilitate this, we’re opening this Partner Idea Forum, a platform where you can offer your ideas. This one is interactive in that you can see, respond to and build on other partners’ suggestions.
As a major learning community for the field, CHE wants to do even more to serve our partners around the world. Please take a few to submit your thoughts. We’ve pulled some comments from recent surveys and posted them below to start the conversation, but feel free to start a new topic.
As with all comments to this blog, civil and respectful dialogue is expected. Please identify yourself as you submit comments. If you prefer to submit private comments that won’t be shared on this blog, please send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note this Partner Idea Forum will stay open only until December 15th, so please get your ideas in soon!
The Collaborative on Health and the Environment’s (CHE’s) primary mission is to strengthen the science dialogue on environmental factors impacting human health and to facilitate collaborative, multifactorial, prevention-oriented efforts to address environmental health concerns. Founded in 2002 as a program of Commonweal, CHE is an international partnership of almost 5000 individuals and organizations in 87 countries and all 50 US states, including scientists, health professionals, health-affected groups, nongovernmental organizations and other concerned citizens, committed to improving human health across the lifespan.
CHE’s primary activities include:
- Sharing emerging scientific research on various environmental factors that can contribute to disease and disability;
- Fostering interdisciplinary and inclusive collaboration among diverse constituencies interested in those links; and
- Facilitating effective actions to improve health across the lifespan.
CHE has created graphical representations of the scope and structure of our work, shown at right and below (click on the graphics for larger versions).
