5. In collaboration with the International Medical Geology Association (IMGA), IEHSC is developing a series of webinars to initiate discussion on the potential role of medical geologist in pandemics, especially COVID-19.
6. Developing lectures and workshops on medical geology to contribute to DUST2023 conference (the meeting of the international network of Geohealth Scientists (INGS) in Bari, Italy.
7. IEHSC in close collaboration with IMGA, SEGH, AGU-Geo Health Section in 2021 put together an international virtual platform for students (undergrads and postgrads) to showcase their research findings in environmental geochemistry and health, and medical geology. The First edition of the Conference held virtually on 18-20 October 2021 for the Latin Americas. The student researchers examined the impacts of the environment from both natural and anthropogenic influences on human, animal, and plant health. The conference received institutional support from several International scientific and governmental organisations. The 2022 edition is being devoted to the Africa Continent.
