Provides students with the opportunity to review the epidemiologic basis for associating selected occupational and environmental exposures with health outcomes and to explore how this science might be used to develop and implement regulation of these exposures. Class sessions are divided between a critical evaluation of the science and a thoughtful engagement with how the science can inform policy. Several sessions include guest experts who have worked at the interface of science and policy.
