EH 521: Environmental Cardiology

The course will assess the impact of the environment on the onset and exacerbation of cardiovascular diseases. Environmental exposures that have been implicated to impact cardiovascular disease are predominantly air pollution, second hand smoke, noise, and heat. The course will present teaching examples showing the study designs applied in environmental epidemiology focusing on cardiovascular disease. Short-term health effects as well as health effects of continuous exposure over decades on the cardiovascular system by these environmental exposures will be demonstrated. The course will explore the evidence for the biological plausibility of the observed health effects and will highlight recent developments in this area concerning gene-environment interactions.
