      University at Fresno, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
      (CDC), Bureau of the Census, US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA),
      the US Geological Survey (USGS), the American Public Health Association

      (NCGIA), is currently planning a "GIS in Public Health" conference for
      August 17-20, 1998, in San Diego, California. This conference will
      highlight innovative applications of GIS (geographic information
      systems) and spatial analysis techniques for the protection of public
      health and the environment.

      On behalf of all sponsors, I invite your participation in this timely
      conference for discussions with an international group of professionals
      in the field of GIS and public health. Abstracts describing
      presentations of your current research in the protection of human health
      through the use of GIS are now being solicited for the August
      conference.

      Complete conference details can be obtained on ATSDR's Home Page,
      located at:
      http://atsdr1.atsdr.cdc.gov:8080/GIS/conference/ An online abstract
      submission form is available to facilitate entry of your conference
      abstracts. If you do not have access to the Internet, please respond to
      this E-mail and I will be more than happy to send you a conference
      brochure.

      An exposition demonstrating state-of-the art equipment, software, and
      books to support spatial analysis will also be occurring at the
      convention center. Regardless of your level of expertise, I encourage
      your participation in this conference.

      Please pass this information on to your colleagues and to other
      interested parties.
