Environmental Public Health Tracking
The NH Environmental Public Health Tracking Program brings together environmental and public health data in one place to inform public health action.
New Hampshire has a lot of nature to enjoy. There is a sea coast to swim and surf. There are mountains, lakes, and forests to explore. However, environmental threats like radon, ultraviolet radiation, and climate change threaten the enjoyment of these natural resources. The New Hampshire Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) Program is keeping track of these and other emerging environmental health threats in order to keep residents informed and protected.
Tracking Drives Public Health Action
The NH Tracking Program’s commitment to data-driven public health action can assist programs, researchers and health officials with critical decisions about where to target public health resources and interventions through:
- Data Analysis: Data analysis at the census tract, town, county and state level.
- Standardized Methodology: Ensure accuracy, reproducibility and adoption of best practices.
- Data Products: Development of new data products to increase awareness and inform decisions.
- Data Collaboration: Collaborate with internal and external partners to utilize data to drive public health action and polices. Working together we can drive public health action, inform program decisions and improve policy.
