The Alaska Collaborative on Health and the Environment (CHE-Alaska) is a working group of the national Collaborative on Health and the Environment. We hold monthly one-hour teleconference seminars to advance knowledge and effective action to address growing concerns about the links between human health and environmental factors. Our speakers include scientists, health care professionals, policy experts, and community activists who are working on a range of environmental health concerns.
