Environmental health is about prevention – our goal is to intervene before people get sick, injured, or killed. We study environments to protect and promote human health, especially the most vulnerable populations. By environment, we mean:
- The natural or ambient environment, such as the air we breathe and the water we drink;
- The built environment, which includes homes, schools and the infrastructure that comprise our neighborhoods; and
- The work environment, such as the factories and offices where we spend so much of our time.
Join us in protecting human health, both at home and abroad.
