Environmental and Occupational Health
The focus of the UAMS COPH Department of Environmental and Occupational Health is to contribute to improving the health and promoting the well-being of Arkansans and the global community, by applying the principles and practices of toxicology and regulatory sciences in education, research, and service.
The department currently includes a diverse and strong group of faculty members actively involved in research, teaching, and public health practice. While faculty activities in research and practice address a broad range of public health issues, the department has particular strength in the areas of:
- environmental exposures assessment and toxicology,
- risk assessment and regulatory sciences,
- community outreach and education, and
- systems and population toxicology.
