Environmental Health Hazards
Question 1: There are many environmental hazards found in the home, work, and environment. Describe at least two hazards from each of these 3 areas. What type of influence do these hazards have on populations?
Question 2: Environmental health disparities refer to vulnerable populations (such as the poor, homeless, immigrants, etc.) having greater exposure to environmental hazards compared with non-vulnerable populations. Discuss the factors that contribute to these disparities. Describe an environmental disparity in your community or one near it. What interventions could be used to mitigate the risks to these populations? How would you advocate for these populations?
