DIT lecturer selected as Honorary Editor of international Environmental Health journal


Kathy Young, Lecturer in Environmental Health in Dublin Institute of Technology, has been appointed Honorary Editor of the Professional Journal of the International Federation of Environmental Health (IFEH).  With members in some 45 countries around the world, IFEH provides a forum, through its conferences and through its Journal, to discuss subjects relevant to environmental health science and administration; to represent the interests of environmental health to state agencies, national governments and international organisations; and to promote field studies of environmental health control.

Presenting her inaugural edition of the IFEH publication, Kathy Young said it was a privilege to be invited to be Honorary Editor.  In her editorial she said “I hope that you will enjoy the articles submitted. I also would encourage members to submit articles for publication as it is necessary to produce evidence based research that will inform Environmental Health Policy. Dublin Institute of Technology has recently established an Environmental Health Science Institute (EHSI) with this objective in mind.”

Kathy’s first edition of the IFEH magazine, Environment and Health International, is now available online at http://www.ifeh.org/magazine/IFEH-magazine-2013-1.pdf
