Know someone who should be a member? We are always recruiting new members for the network, particularly in underrepresented areas, like practitioners in public health, safety, or planning. If you know anyone working in these areas, please recommend them here.
Not getting these regularly? Make sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book, so your mail program doesn’t think we’re spam. Back issues of the newsletter are available here.
Finally, welcome to our new members, and thanks to those who continue to keep the network active and exciting!
