Louisiana's National Sanitarian and Environmental Health Specialist Day


Louisiana recently passed a resolution (see below) to commend NEHA and the Louisiana Environmental Health Association (LEHA) for their achievements in protecting public health. The resolution also designates the fourth Monday in April as National Sanitarian and Environmental Health Specialist Day in Louisiana.

Some background may be of interest here: LEHA cultivated a relationship with the representative and senator who serve on the committees that oversee health and environment issues in the state of Louisiana. The association invited those legislators to speak at its conferences, made them honorary LEHA members, and even had one senator named to receive the NEHA Certificate of Merit from Louisiana this past year.

LEHA thought that having the state legislature declare an annual National Sanitarian and Environmental Health Specialist Day would help the public to better understand the roles that sanitarians and environmental health specialists play in protecting public health and the environment. This occasion can now be used to help spread the word each year to various public groups as LEHA tries to educate them about the environmental health profession.

LEHA encourages other affiliates and members to get their state representatives and senators interested and excited about state environmental health associations, to let them see what good things are being accomplished in the name of public health and the environment, and to work to find common ground.

For more background, please contact LEHA's President-Elect Steve Aguillard by phone at (225) 219-3718 or by e-mail at steve.aguillard@la.gov.
