Population Environmental Health
Class of 2013
I am an environmental engineer with a longstanding interest in the interplay between our environment and human health. While working on the engineering-end of water, sanitation and remediation projects, I became increasingly curious about the science and methods that shape environmental health policy and interventions. The MHS in Environmental Health, with its system of short, but intense terms, gave me the flexibility to build a solid foundation in quantitative methods while also learning from toxicologists, clinicians and policy makers, all within nine months.

I have been amazed by how the faculty here are both eager to share their expertise and interested in what students bring to the table. The opportunity to simultaneously complete the Certificate in Risk Sciences and Public Policy was another draw for those like myself, who wish to play a role in translating research into environmental and health policy.
