February 6, 2019
Annual Conference of the New Brunswick Children's Environmental Health Collaborative

New Maryland Centre, 754 New Maryland Hwy, New Maryland

Places stay with us. 
The places where we live and play as children stay with us and not just through memories; they mould our characters and have a profound impact, be it positive or negative, on our mental and physical health throughout our lives. New Brunswick has a unique landscape dotted with forests, marshes and rivers, but also heavily industrialised areas. Children grow up in all these places. Where did you grow up? How has it affected you? 

Join us on February 6 to hear from experts on public health, industry and contaminants and explore ways in which we can address cumulative impacts and promote positive impacts on children’s health. Let’s tip the balance towards what matters most – our children’s health.
