Agenda of the Workshop
(requires )

Join us for the 10th annual Southwest Environmental Health Sciences Center workshop on integrating toxicology into secondary classes.

This free, weeklong, half-day course will present interdisciplinary methods for teaching environmental health. The workshop will contain lectures, tours, engaging hands-on lessons and computer-based activities. Tours are scheduled for the Synthetic Chemistry and Cellular Imaging laboratories of the Southwest Environmental Health Sciences Center (SWEHSC) at the University of Arizona. Guest speakers from the SWEHSC will discuss their research concerning skin cancer, air toxins, and trichloroethylene (TCE).

New and exciting opportunities for partnerships between teachers and the SWEHSC Community Outreach and Education Program (COEP) will be presented. Lessons from the COEP curriculum “PULSE: Promoting Understanding and Learning for Society and Environmental Health” will be introduced. A CD-ROM and print versions of the curriculum will be provided. Participants will also receive print materials and certificates for 20 hours of attendance.
