The Symposium, scheduled for June 7-8, 2004 at the Harvard School of Public Health’s Kresge Building, Snyder Auditorium in Boston, Massachusetts has assembled key faculty in the areas of Environmental Physiology, Immunology and Infectious Diseases, Environmental Biology, Environmental Health and Human Habitation as well as other international experts to provide an executive briefing that provides a scientific and balanced view on this controversial topic.
