INSTITUTE FOR PUBLIC HEALTH AND WATER RESEARCH ANNOUNCES INAUGURAL SCIENTIFIC CONFERENCE

NAPERVILLE, IL, January 12, 2006 --/WORLD-WIRE/--
They invite interested scientists, regulatory and public health officials, utility managers, and others with drinking water and communication responsibilities to attend.

The Institute for Public Health and Water Research (IPWR) today announced plans for the inaugural scientific conference, "Water Contamination Events: Communication with Consumers," to be convened January 30-31, 2006 in Houston, Texas at the Renaissance Houston Hotel Greenway Plaza.

The conference will consider the range of water contamination events and responses occurring in large, medium, and community based systems. Pre- and post-event communication strategies for reaching consumers will also be discussed, including best practices for communicating with diverse communities and special groups.

A particular focus is the need to restore consumer trust post-event, particularly when events are persistent and appear to be chronic.

The speakers represent countries from around the world and bring a wealth of experience in consumer communication and water contamination events, including hurricanes and tsunamis, to the conference. Consumer communication during high risk events, in all types and sizes of water delivery systems, presents continuing and serious challenges.

The complete conference program, information on hotel accommodations and registration can be found at: http://ipwr.org/resource/prog/0601/index.html

The mission of the IPWR, founded in 2005, is to improve public health through quality drinking water. The IPWR is a 501(c)3 non profit international research and education organization funded by an unrestricted grant from The Brita Products Company.
