Survey of Environmental Health
This course is designed as a survey course which introduces students to basic environmental health topics and it fulfills the school core requirement. The course focuses on environmental factors impacting human health and the environment. Sources of these factors, methods of identification, recognition, evaluation and regulatory framework control are discussed. Factors might include health hazards associated with contaminated water, food and air, vectors of disease, exposure to toxic chemicals, environmental justice, regulations, and safety in the work place. Students are exposed not only to these topics, but also to other factors such as impact of globalization, climate change, deforestation, and general environmental degradation affecting our health and the environment. Since the course is offered to a wide audience consisting of United States and International public health students, environmental health issues pertaining to the United States and developing countries will be addressed.
