  • Environmental Health MethodologicAl, Training, and Teaching EnterpRiSe (EH MATTERS)

    EH MATTERS offers USC undergraduate students, a paid, two-year, three-semester per year internship (Summer/Fall/Spring) to build capacity of diverse students to engage in environmental health sciences and community health disparities research. Rising sophomore and juniors are encouraged to apply.

    This community-engaged environmental health research program will expand students’ understanding of fundamental concepts in environmental health, exposure, susceptibility, risk, and health disparities.
