Environmental Epidemiology

Dr. Caroline Holsinger, Director

Our mission is to prevent and control human diseases and conditions due to exposure to chemical and biological agents in the environment and transmission from animals to humans. We accomplish this through developing and maintaining surveillance programs for environmental factors that may indicate a potential human health hazard, diseases and conditions that may be due to exposure to certain environmental factors, and diseases that are transmitted from animals to humans; investigating reported outbreaks of human diseases and unusual findings from surveillance programs; and communicating findings from surveillance programs and investigations.
