Environment & Health

The relationship of the environment to health is clearly one of the defining issues of the coming decades. McMaster has responded to the need for more research and trained graduates in the field by adopting it as one of the University's Strategic Areas, and by establishing the McMaster Institute for Healthier Environments. Faculty and graduate students from the School have played the major role in these developments and graduates from the School now occupy both academic and professional positions in Canada and other countries.
