Learn how to protect your community by evaluating environmental and health risks of brownfields.
Brownfields – abandoned, underused, and potentially contaminated sites like old gas stations and vacant properties – can negatively impact the overall health of communities. Communities with multiple brownfields often have an undue burden of environmental impacts, leading to environmental justice concerns. The Evaluating Environmental and Health Risks Certificate is geared to environmental and health professionals as well as students in environmental science, public health, and planning. In this full-day training, participants will learn the basics of environmental health and how to evaluate contamination and public health impacts of sites that may be hazardous, such as brownfields. This course engages participants with hands-on practice and multiple guest lectures in live and recorded formats. Participants who complete the full-day training are eligible for 8 CEUs and a Certificate of Completion from the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA).
