CHE Partners on why they value our work

RSVP: 50 Years After "Silent Spring": Pesticides, Children's Health and the State of the Science (Oct 11)


To better understand our reach and impact, we would appreciate having your responses to the items below. Though optional, your answers can help us improve the services we offer.

Some CHE partners have queried why CHE only offers audio conferencing, rather than webinars. Here are our reasons:

  • CHE strives to make all our Partnership calls available to as many people as possible, both in the US and internationally. To achieve this goal, we have chosen to use a simple audio conferencing system because it does not require a participant to download or install any special software or plugins or even to be at a computer when calling in. (Access to a computer or mobile device is only required to download presentation slides.)

  • This system also keeps our costs lower so we can provide more calls than would otherwise be possible (an average of 3-5 per month).

  • In addition, audio conferencing significantly reduces the amount of bandwidth and server space required compared to webinars, and for some CHE partners, that is an important consideration.

We fully realize that webinars have some very useful features - and we may occasionally employ those in certain circumstances. In general, however, our top priority is making sure access to the latest environmental health science is never more than a phone call away.
