Message From ISEE President For ISEE 2020 Conference
Dear ISEE Member,
We are living in extraordinary times. I hope that you are safe and well and able to adapt to the challenges.
As an international organization, we are monitoring the current situation closely, and try to respond in appropriate ways when the occasions arise to make our voices heard. We are currently discussing the fate of our annual conference, a major event for all of us every year. Even though it is planned for end of August, it is uncertain what will happen at that time. Thus, we have started to discuss alternatives to a full face to face meeting, and will keep you up to date. This might be a chance to start ‘greening’ our conference. As of now, we are committed to holding the conference in some form or other, and we will continue with the abstract review.
Finally, I would like to call on you as experts to help the society to get through these challenging circumstances and collaborate in any efforts that are taking place to tackle the crisis.
If you have any suggestions, what we should do as a society, please do not hesitate to contact me.

ISEE Africa side meeting in The Gambia
ISEE Africa chapter held a successful side meeting immediately after a Planetary Health Conference 2020 in The Gambia, West Africa on 24 Jan 2020. There was an engaging panel discussion on how to promote regional research collaboration and capacity development in environmental epidemiology; and environmental health issues that should be of research focus in West Africa. A poster session showcased environmental health studies by ISEE Africa chapter members. The meeting was attended by 43 participants including researchers, postgraduate students and other stakeholders in environmental health in West Africa, some of whom are ISEE Africa chapter members. Eight new members joined ISEE.
