This two-day program provides attendees with a comprehensive overview of regulatory expectations of ecological risk assessments from both federal and state perspectives. Participants will learn to help clients understand how the ecological risk assessment process aids in developing realistic approaches to remediating sites. LSRPs will gain more perspective on the role that ecological risk assessment plays in establishing site clean-up goals.
The objective of this medical symposium is to raise awareness and to work with the medical community to understand the nature and scope of potential health effects of Colorado’s oil and gas development. We also aim to create a space that will foster networking among medical professionals and researchers around this topic.

Exposure to wildland fire smoke is a community health issue that has gained the attention of public health professionals and organizations, especially in states where fires are becoming more frequent and intense. Emissions from wildland fire smoke have significant health implications for those nearby as well as those living farther downwind of the smoke. EPA offers a suite of wildland fire resources that can be used by state environmental and public health agencies to help communicate health risks and ways to reduce exposure with the public before, during and after smoke events.
