This course identifies the potential health hazards of toxic chemicals and methods for preventing exposure. Hazards and risks of exposure are evaluated and put into perspective by exploring chemicals encountered in everyday life. You will learn the basic principles of toxicology, tools for assessing the toxicology of chemicals, effects of chemicals on the body, and why some people are more sensitive to chemicals than others. Focus will be given to state of-the-art research, risk assessment, and risk communication. Case studies will be included with ample time for discussion and answers to questions.
Participants will learn: effects of chemicals on the body; why some people are more sensitive than others; how to develop individual does/response curves; current research issues in toxicology; ethical aspects of toxicology; what to ask and how to communicate about hazards.
