Environment health professionals have been discussing ways to improve local communities at a conference the Shoalhaven City Council is hosting in Mollymook.
Shoalhaven City Council commenced the Environmental Health Australia (NSW) Annual Conference at Mollymook Golf Club on Tuesday, September 11.
The two-day event will showcase environment projects from around the state with this year’s theme ‘Environmental Health Looking Forward’.
Mayor Amanda Findley said she was incredibly honoured that the state’s environmental health community would be visiting the region.
“Environmental health is a field of study on how the environment influences humans and this conference is one of the most important opportunities for environmental health professionals to come together, collaborate and share their ideas on how to improve our communities,” Cr Findley said.
“The event will host keynote speakers from around Australia and discussing everything from contaminated land issues, Aboriginal environmental health projects and infectious diseases in the body art industry to water quality monitoring of the coast and estuaries and safe sharp disposals.
“I am incredibly proud to have the Shoalhaven host the event and that four Shoalhaven City Council staff members are presenting in their field of expertise.”
