Mitigating Environmental Threats to Health
Scientists in the School of Public Health investigate the complex connections between our environment and our health. They have shown that inaction on climate change could lead to tens of thousands of additional heat-related deaths annually within just a few generations. Environmental pollutants, including toxic chemicals, heavy metals, air pollution, and noise, also pose threats to the health and well-being of infants, children, adults, and older adults.
URGING POLICY ACTION
As the world around us changes, researchers in the School develop strategies to protect human health from these growing threats, and urge policy action to mitigate the negative health impacts of climate change and environmental toxins. Your support emboldens scholarly research and strengthens robust training.
