NEHA Environmental Health Land Reuse Certificate ProgramEnvironmental Health and Land Reuse Certificate Program

NEHA is pleased to offer the new Environmental Health and Land Reuse (EHLR) Certificate Program. Beginning in 2016, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) and NEHA launched a partnership to create a free, online, asynchronous course with the goal of building capacity within communities to help remediate and redevelop many of the brownfields sites around the country. Brownfields are land reuse sites often contaminated by harmful chemicals or redeveloped without proper environmental oversight, such as former gas stations, manufactured gas plants, factories, dry cleaners, and abandoned properties.

Based on a NEHA survey, environmental professionals working in local health departments reported varying levels of education in environmental health and land reuse/redevelopment. The EHLR Certificate Program was created to fill that knowledge gap and provides the information needed to build “healthfields” or other health-focused redevelopments in communities. 

This holistic training course consists of six modules:

  1. Introduction to the Environmental Health and Land Reuse Certificate Program
  2. Engaging With Your Community
  3. Evaluating Environmental and Health Risks
  4. Communicating Environmental and Health Risks
  5. Redesigning With Health in Mind
  6. Measuring Success
