An Open Letter from Dr. Christine Durbak, Founder of World Information Transfer

February 15, 1998 

 

Dear Colleague: On behalf of World Information Transfer, I have the honor of inviting you to attend our Seventh International Conference on “Health and the Environment: Global Partners for Global Solutions,” on April 16 and 17, 1998, at the United Nations, co-sponsored by the Peoples Republic of Bangladesh. This year’s theme is “Trauma of Environmental Disasters: Consequences to Human Health.”As you may be aware, our conferences, held at the United Nations, are widely acclaimed for their quality of presentations and participants. You will notice from the attached conference agenda that this year’s program contains very important subjects and many distinguished speakers.

 

We would be honored if you are personally able to attend our conference. We would also like to extend this invitation to others who you feel will benefit from our presentations on this very important topic. ALTHOUGH OUR CONFERENCE IS FREE, DUE TO VERY STRICT SECURITY REQUIREMENTS AT THE UNITED NATIONS, YOU MUST REGISTER IN ADVANCE.

 

This letter will act as your invitation, so please fill in your response below and email, fax or mail it to us by April 5, 1998. 

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Christine K. Durbak, Chair
