Conference on Connections Between Soil Health and Human Health

Hosted by: Soil Health Institute (SHI)

Date: October 16-17, 2018

Location: Silver Spring, Maryland

Registration is open for a conference to explore the connections between soil health and human health! Together we will create an interdisciplinary, collaborative research roadmap to further advance our understanding of those relationships.

Goals:

  • Make relevant connections between soil and human health sciences;
  • Identify promising research opportunities;
  • Build interdisciplinary teams to address those research needs; and
  • Propose funding mechanisms that will lead to scientific findings that benefit the health of agricultural systems, the environment, and the public.

To facilitate meaningful, interactive dialogue, the conference is limited to 200 attendees. Registration is open until filled, or until October 6, whichever comes first. A registration fee of $250 will increase to $300 on September 14, 2018.

Through a generous donation provided by Bayer Crop Science, SHI is able to offer ten, $1,000 scholarships to support graduate student attendance at the Conference. Application instructions are available here.
