Our educational programs for health care providers focus on asthma, obesity, and other environmental health concerns – keeping physicians and nurses up to date on important environmental health science research findings.
Occupational & Environmental Medicine Grand Rounds
Occupational and Environmental Medicine Grand Rounds consist of a case presentation by a second-year resident physician in the HSPH Occupational and Environmental Medicine Residency, followed by a discussion led by a Harvard School of Public Health faculty member or medical specialist. Presentations center on real clinical cases encountered by our second-year residents during their training.

Environmental Health for Nurses Collaborative
In collaboration with the NIEHS’ Children’s Environmental Health Sciences Core Center at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, we are developing case-studies for nurses that enable nurse educators to build environmental health into existing nursing curricula.
Case studies on Lyme Disease, Arsenic exposure, and Mercury exposure will be available to practicing nurses and nurse educators for credits through a dedicated website.
