Have you ever wondered how chemicals and other stressors in the environment affect human health? Then you may be interested in attending the Environmental Health Nanocourse, which is being offered by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health Postdoctoral Association. The course is free and everyone is welcome to attend!

Nanocourses are short courses given in two 3-hour sessions. The nanocourse format provides the opportunity for graduate students, fellows, staff, and faculty without direct training in a discipline to gain a basic understanding through a shortened course format.

The first session will provide an introduction to core concepts and disciplines of environmental health including exposure science, human biomonitoring, toxicology, environmental epidemiology and urban planning. The second session uses a case study format for students to apply concepts learned during the first session.

Schedule: 

First Session (open to the Harvard community): Tuesday, October 27 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Location: FXB 301 (Harvard School of Public Health, Longwood Campus) 

Second Session (limited to registered students): Tuesday, November 3 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
