Environment

Find extensive information on environmental exposures and health effects on the Utah Environmental Public Health Tracking Network web portal, http://epht.health.utah.gov/epht-view/.

The environment plays a key role in public health. From air and water quality to radon and lead, there are many environmental factors that can influence the health of our residents. While many environmental factors are naturally occurring, our behavior can influence and increase some of the negative effects that influence climate change factors, such as automobile emissions and air quality.
Many adverse health outcomes have links to the environment, such as air pollution and an increased risk of heart attacks. Having reliable data about these health concerns provides a clearer picture of how the environment impacts health. This information can then be used to direct interventions to prevent and control these adverse health outcomes.
