  • "I’m an Environmental Health Practitioner, often the only scientist in the room when decisions are made. Who do I rely on for backup? NEHA. When my competency to do what I do is questioned, whose credentialing do I point to? NEHA. When my one voice is not enough to be heard by policy makers, who speaks for me? NEHA. What does NEHA do for me? Plenty."
