Men and women who work in environmental public health are concerned with anything in the environment that may affect human health. This interactive activity from Teachers’ Domain describes careers in six environmental public health disciplines: exposure assessment, epidemiology and biostatistics, environmental health policy, communication, toxicology, and environmental medicine. Learn about careers in these fields and how environmental public health professionals prevent disease, create safe environments, treat people sickened from environmental exposures, and help the public make healthy decisions.
