1.     The Utah Environmental Public Health Tracking Network

Currently, there are 23 state and local health departments that are part of the National Tracking Network. The mission of tracking is to provide information that can be used to plan, apply, and evaluate actions to prevent and control environmentally related diseases.  Understanding how these and other environmental factors are linked to chronic disease is essential to disease prevention—and to protecting the health of our communities. 

The site has public data, secure data and metadata. See it here.

The Environmental Public Health Tracking Network has five goals:

1. Build sustainable National and State Tracking Networks.

2. Build Tracking workforce and infrastructure.

3. Provide data to help health policy, practices, and other actions.

4. Advance environmental public health science and research.

5. Help collaboration among health and environmental groups.
