Center for Community Environmental Health

Understanding when and where disease occurs and the environmental conditions related to disease is a basic community right-to-know issue for both community residents and public health professionals. The Center works in partnership with citizen groups, community advocacy organizations, universities and others to identify and develop environmental health information tools for community-based environmental health interventions and policies. We have developed a citizen's guide to conducting community environmental health assessments that serves as a focal point of the Center’s programs. The workbook can be used with traditional environmental concerns, such as drinking water quality, as well as contemporary issues such as brownfield redevelopment and community revitalization.
