20 Years of Amplifying Science for Health
CHE celebrated its 20th year in 2022, marking the milestone in various ways throughout the year. Below are some highlights of our 20th anniversary activities.
Thank you so much for being part of the CHE community!
Gathering to Celebrate
We gathered for a half-day celebration at Commonweal on Saturday, November 12. The afternoon featured reflections, storytelling and strategizing with environmental health leaders. Video recordings are now available of each "fireside chat" discussion, click through below to listen in.
- Panel 1: Reflections from CHE's Founders (Michael Lerner, Steve Heilig, Dr. Ted Schettler)
- Panel 2: A Case Study of Reproductive Health (Alison Carlson, Dr. Tracey Woodruff, Dr. Shanna Swan)
- Panel 3: Challenges and Opportunities Ahead (Dr. Pete Myers, Dr. Tyrone Hayes)
- Appreciating Partnerships (Sharyle Patton, Kristin Schafer)
- Moving into CHE's Next 20 Years (Kristin Schafer)
Much appreciation to all the panelists — and to everyone who joined us to help celebrate this milestone, in person and online. For those who were able to be there in person, we enjoyed a sneak preview of Pete Myers' photo exhibit Bird life on the beach.
