"As a PhD student in the department of Environmental Health Sciences at UCLA, I have been fortunate to witness the true interdisciplinary nature of this field. There are several opportunities to work with world-renowned leaders on a plethora of topics ranging from water quality, to the built environment, laboratory safety, clinical outcomes, and pedagogy. The EHS department at the Fielding School of Public Health is connected to the community and public health quite literally from the ground up. UCLA EHS faculty and students play a very active role and make prominent impacts on our school, our community, our nation and our world. ULCA FSPH EHS department is a place that I am proud to call home."
