Highlights from PEPH

Partnerships for Environmental Public Health (PEPH) is a network of scientists, community members, educators, healthcare providers, public health officials, and policymakers who share the goal of increasing the impact of environmental public health research at the local, regional, and national level. PEPH defines environmental public health as the science of conducting and translating research into action to address environmental exposures and health risks of concern to the public.

PEPH is based out of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and, among other endeavors, offers many great resources for the environmental health community. Listed below are upcoming events available to the public.
