Environmental Public Health In First Nation Communities

Conditions in the environment, both natural and human-built, can affect a person's ability to achieve and maintain good health. The Environmental Public Health (EPH) Program works to identify and prevent environmental public health risks that could impact the health of a community. This presentation will be an overview of EPH activities within First Nation communities. In addition, information on current community based research project opportunities (drinking water quality and environmental contaminants) will be briefly discussed.
