EOH 510 Principles and Practice of Environmental and Occupational Health 3.0 Credits
This interdisciplinary course gives an overview of environmental and occupational health (EOH) issues and an introduction to approaches for prevention and control of environmental hazards. The course will cover both traditional EOH topics such as air pollution, drinking water and sanitation, and occupational health and safety, as well as salient issues of global concern such as climate change and emerging infectious diseases. The goal is to provide students with knowledge of the basic scientific principles of EOH, as they apply to the practice of public health. Throughout the course, students will examine environmental injustice and racism, particularly how policies and systems marginalize specific populations and contribute to health disparities.
