Our team of Environmental Health Specialists, Practitioners, Risk Assessors, and support staff achieve our goals for the following:
- To identify and evaluate environmental sources and hazardous agents, and
- To use surveillance, education, and enforcement to limit exposure to harmful physical, chemical, and biological agents in air, water, soil, food, and other settings that may adversely affect human health.
