Environmental Health at USC’s Keck School

One of my colleagues at USC pointed out in my recent post on environmental resources at USC that I neglected to mention the significant work going on at Keck.

Our colleagues in the Department of Preventive Medicine at Keck are looking at environmental issues from the health side, with their landmark study of the health effects of air pollution on children called the USC Children’s Health Study. Andrea Hricko directs communty outreach efforts on environmental health, including a community-academic collaborative focused on reducing the health impacts from ports and goods movement facilities called THE Impact Project (Trade, Health and Environment) Impact Project. These research projects have been key environmental justice studies for the region.

Have I made the case for USC yet?
