Introduction to Environmental Toxicology

From the school yard to the construction yard, the environment effects us all. Food, water, air and even soil can contain potentially harmful chemicals and have an adverse effect on human health. A basic understanding of what is hazardous or what is toxic and what levels of exposure create a risk prepares professionals for identifying, preventing, diagnosing, managing or treating populations exposed to environmental toxins at work or at play. In this course, participants will become familiar with hazardous materials that cause health problems, how those chemicals affect the body, and how those chemicals enter the body.
