The public is increasingly concerned about how their health is impacted by environmental hazards such as chemicals, pollution, and food-borne disease.

This program explores the principles of risk assessment, risk management, and risk communication, ensuring you can identify, explain, and make decisions about risks to public health. You will learn how risk analysis is done, how it is interpreted, and how it influences regulatory decision-making.
