                  SYMPOSIUM ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
        
                  1st International Symposium on
Ecosystem Health and Medicine: Integrating Science, Policy and Management

                     June 19 - 23, 1994  Ottawa Congress Centre
                               Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

This Symposium will foster the development of an ecosystem health perspective 
for management of regional and global environments.  The transdisciplinary
field of ecosystem health and medicine bridges the social, health, and
natural sciences in encouraging integrated approaches to assessing, 
maintaining and improving the health of ecosystems under stress.  The
Symposium program will promote dialogue across disciplines to explore the
conceptual and science base for this emerging field, the implications of
changes in ecosystem health for human health, and practical applications to
policies and programs.  The goal is not only to develop the science of
ecosystem health assessment, but also to promote healthy public policy and
to inspire change so that integrative thinking on resources and the
environment truly becomes the "order of the day."  This Symposium provides
an exciting opportunity for professionals working in ecosystem science and
management, medical, health and veterinary sciences, environmental ethics
and law and ecological economics to participate and explore common
strategies in forging a new integrated ecosystem health practice.

Major Symposium Themes Include:  Assessing Ecosystem Health
                                 The Human Health/Ecosystem Health Interface
                                 Linking Science, Ethics and Policy
