The Ohio Environmental Health Association (OEHA) would like to invite students to our annual Southwest OEHA conference on October 3, 2019 for a poster presentation session.

This will be an interactive event in which students can show off their academic studies within the field of environmental health. A group of environmental health professionals will judge the posters, as well as the abstracts, and the winning student will receive an award from the Southwest OEHA! All abstracts and posters will be listed in the conference handout as well as published on the OEHA websites.

(Southwest District web page will be updated soon with 2019 conference info)
