Environmental health focuses on the factors external to people that have health implications.  This seminar focuses on those environmental factors that have disproportionate effects on subgroups of individuals-Environmental Health Disparities. We will pair with Chem 372 (Environmental Chemistry), tackling the same case studies with different disciplinary background and lenses. Developing skills in content and critical analysis we will exploring the intersection between cell biology, public health, and the environment and share our findings with our chemistry collaborators.  Broad topics include regional and global examples investigating air quality, water quality, and exposure to environmental chemicals.
