(9 contact hours) Humans interact with the environment constantly. Building your knowledge can help you take action to improve your health, well-being, and the environment around you. This course focuses on the various ways the environment impacts human health. You will first learn about air and water safety, the global impacts of overpopulation and climate changes, and common health hazards found in the home. You will then learn steps for preventing or controlling disease, injury, and disability related to the interactions between people and their environment.
Poor environmental quality has the greatest impact on people whose health status is already at risk. But with environmental health education, you can help address the societal and environmental factors that increase the likelihood of exposure and disease.
