Program in Human and Environmental Sustainability

Groundbreaking work on the human health effects of environmental toxins such as DDT and oil was carried out at the MDI Biological Laboratory in the 20th century. Building on this legacy, the Program in Human and Environmental Sustainability brings together groups of diverse stakeholders to develop common sense solutions to local and global environmental problems that impact human health and well-being.

These efforts include the Community Environmental Health Laboratory (CEHL), Frenchman Bay Partners, and the annual Human and Environmental Sustainability Summit.
