We testify before Congress on national public health issues.

We publish editorials and advisories in major media outlets on air pollution, mercury, asbestos, lead, pesticide poisoning and global climate change.

Our faculty and students are working locally to oppose placement of a large, natural gas compressor station in a densely populated, low-income, environmental justice community in North Weymouth, Massachusetts.

We educate health professionals, parents and the public.

We work with UN Environment and the World Health Organization.
