The Collaborative on Health and the Environment (CHE) is an international partnership of individuals and organizations committed to addressing environmental impacts on human health across the lifespan. For more information, visit the CHE national website.
CHE-Alaska is a working group of CHE that was established by ACAT to advance knowledge and effective action to address growing concerns about the links between human health and environmental factors. CHE-Alaska sponsors monthly statewide teleconference seminars and other public events featuring Alaskans and nationally-renowned scientists, health care professionals, and policy experts who are working on a range of environmental health concerns.
