Environmental Epidemiology

The Utah APPLETREE Program is part of a cooperative agreement with the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), a federal public health agency. We are responsible for evaluating and responding to environmental public health issues in Utah. These duties include public health assessments, health consultations, exposure investigations, health education, and community involvement.

We Provide

  • Independent, objective health decisions based upon the best available science and data
  • Health information and education to minimize exposure
  • Recommendations to EPAUDEQ, local health departments, and other regulatory agencies for further action
