Since the time of Chadwick, sanitary practice has benefitted from a global outlook supporting evidence-based local enforcement. Chadwick, Snow, Nightingale, and Bazalgette worked side-by-side to solve the sanitary challenges of urban London, and lessons of their leadership crossed the Atlantic to improve lives in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and beyond. Today, the world faces the challenge of a changing climate where environmental health professionals must balance human safety with planetary survival. I joined CIEH to learn from and contribute to the best of the best in local practice while maintaining a global outlook. The unique contributions of environmental health officers must be amplified. Awareness of our work must reverberate from the walls of the homes we visit and the kitchens we inspect to the halls of Parliament, across the Atlantic, and around the globe.Professor Daniel Oerther
