See how CPHHS Alumnus Devin Lucas, PhD is helping to save lives and decrease on the job injury in the commercial fishing industry.

Lucas’ study is the first scientific assessment of the risk of fishing on freezer-trawlers and freezer-longliners. In both types of vessels, the processing of fish is handled on-board. The vessels had reputations for being among the most dangerous in commercial fishing in part because of a few incidents that resulted in multiple fatalities.

Handling frozen fish caused nearly half of all injuries aboard commercial freezer-trawlers and about a quarter of the injuries on freezer-longliner vessels operating off the coast of Alaska, new research from Oregon State University shows.

Great reason why having Human Development and Family Sciences as a part of our college makes us a better and more collaborative College of #PublicHealth

Surrounded by farmland, the town of Molalla is known for its 100-year-old rodeo. But some are trying to make it known for a healthy lifestyle.

Our TEAM OREGON program is turning 30. See why it is recognized as No. 1 in best practices in motorcycle safety in the nation.

TEAM OREGON – a statewide motorcycle rider training program housed in the Oregon State University College of Public Health and Human Sciences and funded by motorcycle endorsements through an Oregon Department of Transportation grant – has training sites in 24 locations across Oregon and employs more than 200 instructors who teach roughly 12,000 riders each year about safe and responsible motorcycle operation.

How can you tell me your Environmental Health concerns, and how can I help you understand Environmental Health?

What #EnvironmentalHealth Scientists want to know at +Oregon State University's Environmental Health Sciences Center

We asked OSU EHSC researchers and personnel what question they were seeking to solve for the Center.
Their answers help you get to know them, and we hope it broadens your understanding of Environmental Health (EH) science.

An indicator of TEAM OREGON’s success in making a difference in motorcycle safety is highlighted by research that shows motorcycle fatalities in Oregon are less than half of the national rate per 10,000 registered motorcycles.

“Last year we had 33 motorcycle-related deaths in the state, and that’s a fraction of the number that we’re seeing in other states,” Steve says. “The trend in the number of fatalities for the last 15 years or so is going down even though the number of riders in Oregon is going up, and we’re proud of that.”

Lifelong health and well-being for every person, every family, every community.
Introduction

Lifelong health and well-being for every person, every family and every community guides the work of our distinguished faculty and extraordinary students. We are responding to the most challenging public health issues facing us today, focusing on prevention strategies to promote health across the lifespan, from healthy children to healthy aging. We are teaching, conducting pioneering research and delivering outreach programs that address optimal nutrition for health, overcoming poverty and hunger, changing inactive lifestyles, improving the lives of children and older adults at-risk, preventing disease, addressing public policy and access to healthcare, and maximizing environmentally friendly materials and structures. 

Inspired by our mission as a leading land-grant university, we create synergy in teaching, research, and outreach to develop the next generation of globally minded public health and human sciences professionals. Through interdisciplinary research and innovative curricula, we advance knowledge, policies and practices that improve population health in communities across Oregon and beyond.
