OHA works to understand the connection between environment and health.
Our environment consists of the air we breathe, the soil beneath our feet, the water we drink, the food we eat and the schools, buildings and homes where we spend our time. Our health can be a reflection of the environment we live in. When our land, water, air and food are healthy and safe, we are more likely to be the same. Environmental health investigations and data help us understand how we are affected by our environment.
