While the researchers associated with the Environmental Health Trust strive to uncover new information about the environmental causes of cancer and other diseases, we recognize that there are health professionals – physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, and others – who daily encounter patients who want to know whether the environment they live in might have caused the disease. Those same professionals also have seemingly healthy patients who may be at-risk for environmentally influenced disease.
This portion of our website is dedicated to providing you, the health professionals, with the knowledge and skills you need to properly assess environmental risk, counsel your patients, intervene where necessary, prevent disease where possible, and become more knowledgeable advocates for a healthier environment.
