These webinars are designed to explain specific environmental health concerns, events, and resources, in collaboration with EH Nexus partners. Attendees are provided actionable information and additional resources to support them. Webinars are recorded and attendees are encouraged to share the recordings with their colleagues, partners, and communities. The EHNexus also hosts conferences. These events provide a more interactive knowledgesharing environment through breakout sessions, open discussions, and presentations. We have covered topics on extreme heat and climate change and working with partners such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and National Institute of Standards and Technology. EH Nexus newsletters include a timely monthly topic, helpful tools, guidance, announcements of upcoming EH Nexus and partner webinars, and public health events across the globe such as World Food Safety Day. The newsletter also provides information that the audience can use to protect themselves, their families, and their communities. The EH Nexus partnerships are a collection of partner organizations committed to sharing environmental health information with audiences who have an interest in environmental public health issues. EH Nexus partner organizations are diverse and come from all sectors and jurisdictions. The common thread among the partners is a commitment to environmental health communication. As partners, we work together on communication activities, such as a webinar in March 2022 about climate change and how clinics can plan and prepare for its impact. We partnered with the Health Resources Services Administration on this event. We also collaborated with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on webinars for National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week in October. We are planning many more upcoming collaborative activities with our partners. Environmental Health Nexus Outreach The EH Nexus is actively expanding its partnerships. All organizations that have an interest in promoting environmental health activities are welcome to join. Joint webinars and other communication activities help our partners reach new audiences and expand their outreach. The EH Nexus is also strengthening its connections with academic environmental health institutions.
