OVERVIEW

The Environmental Core promotesthe science and practice of preventing human injury and illness and promoting well-being by identifying and evaluating environmental sources and hazardous agents and

limiting exposures to hazardous physical, chemical, and biological agents in air, water, soil, food, and other environmental media or settings that may adversely affect human health.

 

SPECIFIC AIMS

Aim 1:  To increase our understanding of the complex interactions between health disparities and the natural, built, social and policy environments.

Aim 2:  To promote the use of trans-disciplinary models and analyses to increase knowledge about the complex relationships between health disparities and the physical, built, social and policy environments.

Aim 3:  To discover the mechanisms and pathways through which environmental exposures increase risk for disease and population-level health disparities.
