This listserv (online discussion) was created 5 years ago for nurses who are especially interested in environmental health. The listserv is moderated, meaning that there is a gatekeeper and information can only be sent by the moderator, who is on staff at the Environmental Health Education Center at the University of Maryland School of Nursing. Anyone can send the moderator information for distribution to the listserv. (To join the listserv, please email bsattler@son.umaryland.edu. Place "enviRN" in the subject area of the email message.)
