Supporting tomorrow’s environmental health leaders

Dr. Russ Castner is helping to improve human health—one graduate student at a time.

The retired Shoreline dentist never got the chance to use the environmental health degree he earned as one of the first graduates of the UW School of Public Health.

Yet his ongoing support for students in the Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences (DEOHS) has fueled national and international research into the connections between our health and the environment.

Celebrating excellence

Seven students and staff members from the UW Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences (DEOHS) were recognized Friday at an annual awards celebration held by the UW School of Public Health.

Their contributions range from investigating the health effects of climate change to advocating for women in trades to the development of a new tool to monitor air pollution.

Watch for profiles of many of these award winners on our blog in coming weeks.
