  • Description:
    The Federal Register for March 11, 2004, contained an announcement for “Regional Academic Environmental Public Health Centers.” The purpose of the announcement was “to facilitate the development of an integrated national system for academic institutions to assist and support state and local public health departments, and tribal health agencies in the delivery of environmental health (EH) services.” The announcement would fund five academic institutions to serve as regional centers. The award would be in the form of a cooperative agreement with the Environmental and Emergency Services Branch of the National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One of those regional centers, the Southeast Regional Academic Center for Environmental Public Health (SE-RAC) would be housed within the School of Public Health at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The NCEH deemed that the region would include ten mainland U. S. states and two U. S. territories. Those states and territories are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee, plus Puerto Rico and the U. S. Virgin Islands. The NCEH asked the regional academic centers to develop a means by which a snap shot of the practice of EH in the southeast region could be presented. For SE-RAC this snap shot is captured in documents called Environmental Public Health (EPH) Practice Profiles. The content elements of the profiles were taken directly from the regional academic centers’ funding opportunity announcement. Submitted to the Division of Emergency and Environmental Health Services, National Center for Environmental Health, U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. SERAC.pdf
