Health Assessments and Related Documents

The Toxicology and Response Section of MDCH's Division of Environmental and Occupational Epidemiology conducts public health assessments and consultations at sites of environmental contamination.  The health assessor determines what, if any, threat to human health a site may pose and makes recommendations that are protective of public health.  This work is funded by the federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.  Click on the links below to find out more about ATSDR and the services and information it provides to communities.
