This class meets with SPEA-H 316.

This course is intended to provide students with a broad perspective
on how the complex interactions of man and environment affect human
health. Emphasis is placed on understanding the ways in which
biological, chemical, and physical agents in the environment cause
disease and the means by which such disease can be prevented or
controlled. The first one-third of the course is devoted to a
review of the essential framework and tools of environmental health
practice including concepts of disease and its prevention,
epidemiology, toxicology, and risk assessment. The remaining two-
thirds of the course focuses on the application of these concepts
and tools in a range of traditional environmental health sub-
disciplines such as food safety, vector control, air and water
quality and pollution control, radiological health, solid and
hazardous waste management, and occupational health.
