Environmental Epidemiology

Environmental Epidemiology Program-EEP

The Utah Department of Health and Human Services Environmental Epidemiology Program (EEP) considers all aspects of the natural and man-made environment that may affect human health.

  • EEP assesses and responds to human exposure to hazardous substances in the environment.
  • We provide data and measures to tell Utahns about environmental health risks so they can make informed decisions.
  • EEP establishes and maintains health and sanitation rules and enhances education, prevention, and surveillance of childhood lead poisoning.
