1 in 6 Americans live in areas of high wildfire risk. It's not a question of if you will experience a wildfire. It is a question of when.

Honoring the Women Who Were Trailblazers in Environmental Health

Women's History Month, observed annually in March, is a time to celebrate the contributions of women throughout history. Today we want to celebrate women who have made significant strides in pursuing environmental justice. Their work has helped us better understand the natural world, identify environmental challenges, and develop solutions to protect our planet. Their legacies inspire us to continue the work of advancing environmental science and inclusivity in science.

The COVID-19 pandemic flipped our world upside down. Among other things, it had a dramatic effect on work & workers. Yet, particularly during the early days of the pandemic, this effect was unclear. 

EHSC researchers developed a survey to understand how workers and their families have been affected by COVID-19 – both on the job and at home. We also collaborated with several organizations to develop customized versions of the survey.

Could Everyday Noise be Affecting your Health?

Did you know that all five of your senses are exposed to environmental factors that can affect your health? You breathe in wildfire smoke, you see how droughts are affecting agriculture, taste compounds polluting your water, and you touch chemicals in cosmetics and shampoos- but can you hear a threat to your health? 

The simple answer is yes. A walk in the city, blasting music on the radio on your daily drive, or working around loud machines all expose you to noise pollution.
