  • Environmental Health Wide-Ranging, Multi-faceted Field

    Hurricane Katrina. Ground Zero. West Nile Virus. These are high-profile examples of disasters or other threats in which environmental health professionals play a role in protecting public and environmental health.

    In this wide-ranging and multi-faceted field, environmental health specialists also regularly inspect restaurants, public pools and waste water systems to prevent outbreaks of infectious disease and other public health or environmental problems.

    The Oregon Health Licensing Agency (OHLA) oversees regulation of environmental health specialists and other health and related professions.
