Initial meeting which led to the formation of CHE
March 21, 2002
The Collaborative on Health and the Environment (CHE) was initiated at a meeting at the San Francisco Medical Society on March 21, 2002, and co-sponsored with Commonweal, a health and environmental research institute in Bolinas, California. A two-day conference in Bolinas followed the San Francisco meeting, where a smaller group of committed individuals came together to determine the overall structure of the network
