A Global Dilemma: Our Health and the Environment
| Rita Anne Rollins Building, Room 102
Advances in industry and technology have made our lives safer, yet they have also created potential dangers. Health is linked to the places in which we live, the water that we drink, and the air that we breathe; therefore environmental exposures have a direct impact on our physical well-being. Emory faculty who are leaders in researching this topic will examine how environmental threats are affecting our health, their impact on our policies and healthcare system, and the ways we can strike a balance between economic growth and a healthy world.
