Environmental Health Risk: Analysis and Applications
Monday, March 09, 2020 8:00 AM EST to Thursday, March 12, 2020
Category: Other Meetings & Conferences

Risk analysis is a scientific tool designed to help us determine the existence and extent of threats to human health, provide information about how best to manage these risks, and improve our ability to communicate with the public about the proper response to these hazards.

This continuing education course explores the principles of risk assessment, risk management, and risk communication, ensuring you can identify, explain, and make decisions about risks to public health. You will learn how risk analysis is done, how it is interpreted, and how it influences regulatory decision-making. This program will provide you with the knowledge and skills to analyze how environmental hazards impact human health.
