      Greater emphasis is being placed on health promotion and disease
      prevention as a means to reduce the costs of care by improving the
      health of our populations. These changes have created a broad array
      of new opportunities for professionals with advanced training in

      being placed on assuring the safety of our communities as well as
      worker health and safety. As a result, there is growing demand for
      experts in environmental health and industrial hygiene.
