xCAMP Countdown

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

The concept of an environmental health clinic (xCLINIC) was created and implemented by Natalie Jeremijenko of New York University.

The concept approaches health from an understanding of its dependence on external local environments; rather than on the internal biology and genetic predispositions of an individual. It directs attention to root causes rather than symptoms. The idea is that by building awareness, initiating behavioral change through action, and ameliorating your own local environmental health, you improve the health of humans and improve the local environment around you. The more people who participate, the greater the cascading effects.

xCAMP is a gathering of practitioners across many disciplines to collaboratively evolve the concept and design the xCLINIC project.

The event is SOLD OUT. More details can be found here.
