PH 151 Environmental Health Science and Policy

This course engages students in the exploration of major environmental and occupational health issues through application of the basic tools of environmental science including epidemiologic methods, toxicology and risk assessment. Participants will examine the relationship between environmental and occupational exposures and human disease with emphasis on the interface of science and policy, the role of regulatory agencies and environmental risk communication. Topics include air and water quality, hazardous waste, radiation, heavy metals, food safety, environmental pathogens, and clinical occupational medicine. Faculty use a variety of teaching tools including lectures, audiovisual media, case studies, guest experts, and assigned readings/exercises. As a culminating project, students will author an environmental policy white paper based on a synthesis of scientific evidence.
