NEHA March 2019 Journal of Environmental Health

March 2019 • Journal of Environmental Health 7 President@neha.org To paraphrase Dr. William Foege, a for- mer CDC director, “Collection and analysis of data shouldn’t be allowed to consume resources if action does not follow.” The purpose of collecting environmental health data must be known ahead of time. Col- lecting data for the purpose of monitoring health is critical in environmental health. In order to get the most benefit, our data must be collected in a routine, uniform, and standardized manner. Finally, once these environmental data are collected and analyzed, they must be disseminated and communicated to key stakeholders to ensure the health of people in our commu- nities. T he NEHA Endowment Foundation was established to enable NEHA to do more for the environmental health pro- fession than its annual budget might allow. Special projects and programs supported by the foundation will be carried out for the sole purpose of advancing the profession and its practitioners. Individuals who have contributed to the foundation are listed below by club category. These listings are based on what people have actually donated to the foundation—not what they have pledged. Names will be published under the appropriate category for 1 year; additional contributions will move individuals to a different category in the following year(s). For each of the categories, there are a number of ways NEHA recognizes and thanks contribu- tors to the foundation. If you are interested in contributing to the Endowment Foundation, please call NEHA at (303) 756-9090. You can also donate online at www.neha.org/about-neha/donate. Thank you.
