Environmental Health Factors

To prepare for this Discussion read Chapters 1 and 2 of the course text and review the websites provided in this week’s Learning Resources. Review the media presentation “Impact of Environmental Health.” Select two articles from your local news media (newspapers, magazines, and local online forums) that identify environmental health conversations and concerns in your region. Think about how historical events have affected the world today. Reflect on the potential environmental health concerns and how they connect to past events.

Post a brief summary of the two articles you selected that identify environmental health concerns in your region. Then describe the environmental factors that influence human health with regard to these articles. Discuss any key developments in environmental health history that may have impacted the events in your articles. Finally, describe any correlations between the events.
