Our environment and health are pivotal to today’s world and future; this requires individuals who are qualified with a broad knowledge of the continuously evolving health sciences field. Health is the focal point to humanity and without proper health, our existence would be at stake. The general quality of life, health care, and service are becoming a concern as environmental and health institutions have been relatively successful in outperforming disciplinary expectations.
However, we continue to face serious issues that are affecting our environment, our health, and consequently, our very existence.
