As Chair and Associate Chair of the Department of Environmental Health, we welcome you to our EH website. For more than 100 years, the Department of Environmental Health has had a rich history of making important contributions to the understanding and improvement of public health through national and international leadership in research and education/training in environmental and occupational health. Through work in our laboratories, field studies, and large scale epidemiological studies, we explore the human health effects of environmental and occupational exposures. Our research provides the basis for environmental and occupational health policies and our teaching and mentoring produces world leaders who will continue to advance our knowledge of the impact of environmental and occupational exposures on human health.
