The sixty eighth WA State Environmental Health Conference will be held from the 25th until the 27th of August at Crown Perth by the Western Australian branch of not for profit organisation, Environmental Health Australia.

The landmark annual event consists of a series of workshops and presentations, providing environmental health officers from all industries with an opportunity to glean the latest updates to findings and best practise directly from leaders within the environmental health community.
