Environmental Health Investigations branch

Welcome

The Environmental Health Investigations Branch (EHIB) studies and explains how the health of our environment affects our health. We provide information that can help reduce human exposure to harmful environmental risks. Our mission is to protect the health of all Californians by identifying environmental hazards, partnering with communities to build their capacity, and promoting healthy environments.

What's New?

  • Mold in the Home Video Series. Rainy season = mold season. Dampness, moisture, and water leaks at home can turn into a harmful mold problem. Our six new videos, in English and Spanish, can help you identify issues and find solutions.

  • EHIB has started a coalition of "promotores de salud" to reduce the use of skin creams that contain mercury. Mercury in these creams has caused many health problems for the people who use them and for their children.

  • Asthma Management Academy Goes Virtual! EHIB's 20-hour asthma training has prepared over 400 community health workers to teach families evidence-based asthma self-management. Due to the pandemic, this highly participatory training is now available online.
