Inaugural Planetary Health/GeoHealth Annual Meeting

Nereus Fellow Tiff-Annie Kenny (University of Ottawa) attended the Inaugural Planetary Health/GeoHealth Annual Meeting at Harvard University from April 29 to 30, 2017. Planetary Health is defined as “the health of human civilization and the state of the natural systems on which it depends” (Rockefeller Foundation – Lancet Planetary Health Commission Report), and is related to GeoHealth, which stands for Global Environmental and Occupational Health.

The Meeting was organized by the Planetary Health Alliance, along with the American Geophysical Union, the Ecological Society of America, and the Lancet. The annual meeting showcased scientific research, policy, and management developments through session speeches and poster talks.
