EPA Partners with Public Health Associations
The following links exit the site ExitTo strengthen engagement with public health professionals at the local and state levels, EPA’s Office of Research and Development is collaborating with the American Public Health Association (APHA), National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) , Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL), and National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO). Through Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) agreements, EPA and these partners are sharing critical public health information, enhancing the communication and translation of environmental public health research and activities, improving access to each organization’s tools, and collaborating on specific projects.
EPA is partnering with public health organizations to:
- Put scientific tools and resources into the hands of those who need it most - the professionals on the front lines of protecting health in communities, cities, counties and states.
- Collaborate and share information on common areas of interest such as the health impacts of air pollution on cardiovascular health, harmful algal blooms, lead, chemicals such as PFAS found in the environment, and emergency response/homeland security efforts.
- Provide training and information exchanges between EPA researchers and the public health community.
