Welcome

Official website of New Hampshire Environmental Public Health Tracking Program

How clean is New Hampshire’s air? What health problems could be linked to the water we drink? What relationships may exist between environmental exposures and cancer?

New Hampshire’s Environmental Public Health Tracking Program will help policymakers, health professionals, scientists, researchers and others to:

  • Advance research on possible linkages between environmental hazards and disease;
  • Monitor information about environmental hazards and disease trends;
  • Track advances in health status and environmental improvements; and
  • Use data to develop, implement, and evaluate regulatory and public health actions to prevent or control environment-related diseases.

Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as part of the National Environmental Public Health Tracking Program, New Hampshire’s Tracking program also links you to comparable information from other states and to national data.

NH Tracking Program Greets Hikers at Pawtuckaway State Park
September 21, 2018

The NH Tracking Program set up a display table at a hiking trail head at Pawtuckaway State Park in Nottingham, NH. Hikers were welcomed to the trail, introduced the NH Environmental Public Health Tracking Program and asked if they would like to play an environmental health game. The game consisted of numbered plastic ducks and frogs swimming in a bowl of water. Hikers would pick a duck or frog and tell us the number on the bottom to determine the question asked. The Tracking Program spoke to more than 50 hikers and had a great time discussing important environmental health topics, including testing well water, radon, tickborne disease and others. Everyone received an outdoor trail kit for playing the game containing insect repellent, sunscreen, band aids, and antiseptic.

 

Stay tuned for our next visit to a hiking trail in Spring 2019!
