The Hunter College Center for
Occupational and Environmental Health (COEH) was established
in 1990 by the board of trustees of the City University of New
York (CUNY) as a research, training and educational center
whose mission is to promote community and workplace health.
The Hunter COEH works with community based
organizations, schools, labor unions, private employers and
federal, municipal and state agencies to promote better
understanding, access to information and improved skills in
addressing workplace and environmental hazards.
In 2009, we are focusing on improving the skills of hazardous
materials and emergency response workers, enhancing
community-based research partnerships to address neighborhood
air pollution, reducing asthma rates in NYC, and training
Community Health Workers.
