  • EPH584 – Introduction to Occupational Health

    • Description: This course offers a general introduction to major concepts and issues in occupational health and safety from local to global, addressing fundamental topics and current controversies about employment, jobs, and work.  The course covers core topics that prepare public health students to more fully understand and address occupational health issues: toxicology, exposure assessment, occupational epidemiology, and risk assessment/risk management, prevention of workplace injury and disease, health promotion of adults and protection of worker populations from environmental hazards.  Students will actively engage with the course material through in-class and online case discussions, debates, and review of occupational health-related current events.

    • Institution Taught: University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine

    • Role: Course Director & Instructor

       

  • EPH541 – Integrated Aspects of Environmental Health (MD\MPH)

    • Description: This course offers a general introduction to environmental health from local to global, addressing fundamental topics and current controversies.  The first part of the course covers core topics that prepare medical students to more fully understand and address environmental health issues: toxicology, exposure assessment, environmental epidemiology, risk assessment/risk management, air pollution, water pollution, and environmental justice.  Using the tools from the first part of the course, students then participate in sessions on occupational health, children's health and the environment, injuries, climate change and health, the built environment/urban sprawl, and debates concerning pesticide use. Students can actively engage with the course material through in-class and online, case discussions, debates, and review of environment-related current events.

  • EH202 – Principles of Environmental Health

    • ​Description: This course is appropriate for students interested in learning quantitative methods for assessing environmental exposures and hazards. This course is directed at first year Environmental Health students and MPH students with specific interest or experience in environmental health. Students will learn methods for quantitative evaluation and public health responses to environmental hazards through lectures, problem solving, and case studies. The course is structured around specific tools including exposure assessment, epidemiology, toxicology and pathophysiology, risk assessment, life cycle analysis, and environmental policy.

  • EH528 – Transdisciplinary Research in the Study of Occupational Health and Safety

    • ​Description: Transdisciplinary methods provide a conceptual framework that can be used to create effective research teams that can address these complex problems. This course offers a unique and dynamic overview of the different methodological approaches to the study of occupational health and safety (i.e. social, legal, medical, biomechanical, psychological, epidemiological, and behavioral). Students will learn how to leverage these different methods and approaches to select and implement powerful transdisciplinary research designs for the study of occupational health and work disability.

    • Role: Course Co-Director and Instructor

       

  • Public Health 101 Nanocourse

    • ​Description: Graduate students and postdocs at HSPH and elsewhere at Harvard have had limited opportunities outside of traditional coursework to gain a basic understanding of the multidisciplinary areas of study within public health and the roles they each play in improving health. To provide a succinct overview and introduction to the field of public health, we have developed the “Public Health 101” nanocourse. The nanocourse will give an overview of the five core areas of public health (epidemiology, biostatistics, social and behavioral sciences, environmental health, and health services administration). Attendees will learn about various epidemiologic study designs (epidemiology and biostatistics), health behavior intervention research (social and behavioral sciences), and the built environment and health (environmental health). In the second session, attendees will use a case-based approach to integrate the skills and knowledge gained in the first session in the context of an exercise related to public policy (health services administration).
