>health and medicine bridges the social, health and natural
>sciences to encourage integrated approaches to assessing,

>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.  This symposium will
