Health Professionals Advisory Board
Under the Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909, the Health Professionals Advisory Board was established in 1995 to provide advice to the International Joint Commission and its Boards about current and emergent clinical and public health issues in the area of transboundary environmental health.
The Health Professionals Advisory Board is also responsible for developing recommendations concerning ways in which the communication of transboundary environmental health knowledge and information could be made more effective.
THANK YOU FOR STEPPING IN AND SPEAKING OUT FOR THE GREAT LAKES IN 2019
Throughout June - October, the IJC visited several Great Lakes communities to hold public meetings, roundtables and educational events to hear everyone's perspective about the lakes' health now and in the future. More than 1,300 Great Lakes residents attended our meetings, and another 730 provided your input on Agreement progress through an online survey. Thank you!
The meetings are part of the IJC's consultation throughout the Great Lakes region to assess both countries’ progress to accomplish the goals they agreed to in the 2012 Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement. Your input will help to ensure that the IJC provides an effective evaluation and advice about progress to restore our precious Great Lakes in its Triennial Assessment of Progress report, which will be released in spring 2020. Videos of everyone's comments at the meetings and all written input will be added to this website at that time, which you can view by using the "Learn More" link below.
