Uni. of Pittsburgh WHO CC and Library of Alexandria Environmental Health Supercourse (Beta version)

Translating Environmental science into the classrooms of the world

The Supercourse represents a global network of 64,000 primarily academic Scientists. There are 7109 .gov members or which  13 are from the EPA.  This is a network where individuals cross disciplines effectively share knowledge with each other and with Academia, for example in the H1N1 outbreak, Hurricane Rita, and the Tsunami.  Interoperability is very much needed.  We achieve interoperability and information exchange across disciplines using a simple, but powerful approach.  We collected 3723 of the best lectures on environmental health, global health and prevention. 

Supercourse lectures on  Environmental Health (about 550 lectures)

     EPA Homepage  The central agency for environmental health in the US is the Environmental Protection Agency, EPA. Within the EPA there are branch agencies that need to operate together. The EPA  also needs to work together vertically, with scientists at the local level, the state level, the national level and globally. It also has to work with other scientific groups horizontally such as CDC, NIH, Academia, USGS, the military, etc. Because of the many diverse and separated environmental scientific groups, this is difficult to achieve.  We believe that one partial answer for environmental health to help build Interoperability is a Supercourse for Environmental scientists. There are 1710 EPA members E-mails at Supercourse list so far.
