    This summer the USEHA will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of its existence as an affiliate of the National Environmental Health Association in Nashville Tennessee. We will enhance our usual annual Educational Session and Business Meeting by having a reception to celebrate USEHA, its members, and our exceptional contributions to the Environmental Health profession.


    If you are thinking of making a tax-free donation to support the 50th Anniversary Celebration activities now would be a good time to do it. Any donation amount will be greatly appreciated.


    This year we will also be joined by the Uniformed Services Affiliate who will also be holding their Reception in conjunction with our event . The meeting will take place at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Conference Center Nashville, Tennessee, in Room Davidson A which is on the Magnolia Mezzanine Level, on July 9th from 7:30 to 10:00 PM.


    Please plan to attend the conference this summer and celebrate this monumental USEHA event. More information on this event will be posted in the coming months.
