Dear HEFN Community, We have just recently released our first edition of our refreshed HEFN newsletter, "HEFN Happenings." I hope that you will find the newsletter useful as we share the exciting developments that are unfolding at HEFN in 2023. This year has been marked by growth, progress, and renewed dedication to our mission, and I can't wait to fill you in on what's been happening and what lies ahead. First and foremost, I want to express my gratitude for the incredible energy and enthusiasm that filled the air during our first in-person annual meeting in over three and a half years. The conversations, connections, and collaborative spirit in New Orleans left a lasting impact on all of us. I extend my heartfelt appreciation to the planning committee, speakers, staff, and everyone who contributed to making the event a resounding success. Together, we engaged in innovative, fearless, and inspiring discussions that have set the stage for even greater achievements. Stay tuned to your inbox and follow us on social media for more insights and inspiration from the meeting and updates on how we plan to advance collaboration on important issues such as: How can strategic dialogue between market-based campaigns and fenceline EJ leaders accelerate the movement for a healthier world?
