Save the Date for the 2012 Annual Education Conference

The Idaho Environmental Health Association will hold its annual education conference on March 14-16, 2012 at Boise State University. Volunteers will be needed to moderate sessions and a Call for Abstracts can be found on the IEHA website. Please consider being a speaker at next year's event.


Donations are also being accepted for the Student Scholarship Award. Each year, a deserving student in the field of environmental health receives a $500 scholarship from IEHA. Since IEHA is a nonprofit organization your donations are tax deductible. 


Elections are also held in conjunction with annual membership meeting, a luncheon event at the conference. Please consider running for one of the open leadership positions with your professional association (president-elect, secretary/treasurer and area representatives). We need you!

Finding Out More About Your Community's Health



The County Health Rankings provides a snapshot of a community's health and a starting point for investigating and discussing ways to improve health. Beyond the measures provided in the Snapshot and Additional Measures sections of this website, other community health data are available from national and state organizations. We recommend reviewing the information in your community's snapshot and then identifying key areas where you may wish to look for additional data. (Be sure to check out the Exploring the Data section so that you do not miss any of the information on the site.)
