Environmental Health

Human Resources at the Florida Department of Health:


A safe and healthy environment is one form of preventive medicine you cannot get from your health care provider or drugstore. Yet, it is crucial to your family and community's well-being. With a career in environmental health, you can help prevent or reduce potential health risks in your daily surroundings. From publishing advisories on food safety, to providing education on how to protect against mosquitoes, and ensuring public pools are maintained, there are many career opportunities in the realm of environmental health.
