EHA : Yearkbook 2009
EHA YEARBOOK 2009 Branch Reports EHA also participated in the Australian Council on Smoking and Health (ACOSH) Council meetings in 2008-2009 where smoking prevention strategies are discussed. The Council saw the WA private member’s bill introduced to amend the Tobacco Products Control Act to include various smoking prohibitions as the main item of business. At the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre in February 2009, EHA participated in the Preventative Health Taskforce consultations for the national discussion paper “Australia: the healthiest country by 2020”. Also in February 2009, EHA members attended and participated in the enHealth annual roadshow at Grace Vaughan House to familiarise EHPs with evidence-based practices, to improve awareness and knowledge of the National EH Strategy and support workforce development of EHPs. EHA attended the first birthday celebrations in early March 2009 of the Public Health Advocacy Institute of WA at Curtin University Health Research Campus, Shenton Park. Then in late March 2009 PHAIWA had the public health open forum immediately before the EHA Branch Conference. In early April 2009, EHA held its 63 r d Branch Conference ‘Redesigning Environmental Health’ for two days at Esplanade Hotel, Fremantle. A number of post-conference workshops were also well attended. Sadly in early May 2009, EHA branch members attended the funeral of former long serving Executive Officer Joyce Sunderland. Later in May 2009, EHA attended the U WA Centre for Water Research consultation to consider strategies on reconnecting the community with the main coastal river systems in the Perth catchment basin. The last EHA event held in 2008-2009 by the WA/NT Branch was in mid June 20 09 at the Canning River Ecocentre presenting the topic of Clandestine Drug Laboratory Seminar for EHPs. This was well attended and presented by a number of key stakeholders, including Department of Environment and Conservation, WA Police, the Chemistry Centre of WA , ToxFree industrial cleaning company, McLeods Lawyers and Local Government officers. Thanks again to all those who have assisted EHA WA/NT Branch to remain the premier EH organisation relevant to EHPs and I look forward to your continued support and membership in future years Joseph Zappavigna MEHA WA/NT Branch President Western Australia/Northern Territory Branch (continued)
