Environmental Health

Environmental health is a broad field concerned with how natural and built environments affect human health. COEH faculty conduct research exploring multiple dimensions of environmental health, including how occupational, living and commuting environments contribute to health outcomes. COEH members are also pioneering methods and technologies for exposure and risk characterization and management.
