The University Connection

The Clinical Center for Environmental and Occupational Health is a major outreach service of the internationally respected Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute.

The Institute's goals are: recognizing, evaluating and preventing risks to human health and the environment; improving methods to find and treat people affected by environmental agents; and developing and translating scientific information for effective decision-making by communities, employers, workers and government officials.

The Institute is among a select number of national centers of excellence recognized by several federal agencies, including the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NEIHS), the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA).
