Teaching Environmental Public Health: An Introduction

This lesson designed for professional development is a general introduction to the subject of environmental public health.

View videos, use interactive activities, and answer questions to explore five basic topics in environmental public health: conditions and diseases, exposures and risk, research methods, community action, and health policy. Finish the lesson by using the five topics as a framework to examine an environmental health hazard of your own choosing.
