About the Program

The quality and quantity of the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and the environments where we live have a profound impact on our health and well-being. Environmental health professionals are involved with improving our understanding of how environmental agents may affect health in order to promote health and prevent disease. Areas of environmental health science include assessing exposure to environmental agents, understanding the relationships between exposure and disease, and translating this knowledge into science-based policy.
