Call for Papers

Environmental epidemiology is the branch of epidemiology concerned with discovery of the environmental exposures that contribute to or protect against injuries, illnesses, developmental conditions, disabilities, and deaths; identification of public health and health care actions to avoid, prepare for, and effectively manage the risks associated with harmful exposures.
