Environmental Public Health Tracking 101
4 CE Credits

Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) is the ongoing collection, integration, analysis, interpretation, and dissemination of data on environmental hazards, exposures to those hazards, and health effects that may be related to the exposures. The goal of tracking is to provide information that can be used to plan, apply, and evaluate actions to prevent and control environmentally related diseases. CDC is currently leading the initiative to build a National EPHT Network, to integrate these three types of data into a standardized electronic network.   This course gives an overview of the major components of Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT).
