Exposure Science and Epidemiology
Dr. Carignan developed and teaches this graduate level course that covers methods for understanding how people are exposed to agents in food, water, and the environment (exposure science) and how those exposures can affect human health (epidemiology). It’s offered at Michigan State University (FSC 843) during the fall of even years and involves case studies, discussions, student projects, and lectures.
Environmental health is the study of how environmental factors, including certain chemicals, can effect the health of people. Dr. Carignan has taught this MPH-required course to graduate and undergraduate students at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Dartmouth College, Boston University School of Public Health, and the University of New England.
Dr. Carignan co-developed and taught a nanocourse entitled Public Health 101 for Harvard Medical School. The multi-disciplinary case study on climate change and health for the course received an award from the Harvard Public Health Case-Based Teaching and Learning Initiative.
