CHDS core faculty James Hammitt will direct his annual risk analysis course on February 28 through March 4, 2022. The course is designed for professionals and academics, including graduate students, and focuses on the evaluation, communication, and management of environmental, health, and safety risks.

Shifting the course online has expanded participation from outside North America, increasing the breadth of experience and perspectives that participants bring. Participants come from government, industry, advocacy, and academic communities.

A dozen course faculty, many with substantial government and industry experience, cover disciplines that are central to risk analysis (epidemiology, toxicology, mathematical modeling, psychology, management) and describe applications to diverse health risks (infectious disease, air and water pollution, space flight). Learning is enhanced through a mix of online lectures, discussions, and role-playing exercises.
