Description

A BESTSELLING ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH TEXT, REVISED AND UPDATED TO ADDRESS NEW CONCERNS

Environmental Health: From Global to Local is an essential core text for students of public health, preventive medicine, community health, and environmental studies. Expert contributors provide comprehensive coverage of traditional environmental health topics including air, water, chemical toxins, radiation, and pest control, alongside deep exploration of increasingly critical topics such as building design, energy, disaster preparedness, environmental psychology, climate change, and more.

This new edition maintains a strong empirical grounding and broad, cross-cutting scope, expanding coverage to address emerging concerns and burgeoning issues that affect populations around the world.

Environmental Health, Third Edition includes:

  • Updated coverage on vulnerable populations including children, poor and minority communities, the elderly, and others
  • New discussion on ecology and sustainability issues
  • Integrated coverage of policy issues and a more global focus
  • Additional examples, instructor's resources, and discussion questions designed to elicit deep engagement

The environment's effect on human health and well-being is becoming increasingly relevant to everyday life, reaching into fields as diverse as communications, technology, policy, medicine, and law. Environmental Health demonstrates the importance of these issues globally and locally, at work, and at home.
