National Environmental Public Health Tracking Network

Through a cooperative agreement between the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the Kansas Environmental Public Health Tracking Program has developed applications to collect, analyze, interpret and publish environmental health data indicators as part of the National Environmental Public Health Tacking Network. The tracking network can help to identify threats to the health of Kansans posed by the environment and will improve how KDHE responds to those threats. Individuals are able to access critical environmental health information that can assist them to make informed decisions and take action if necessary to protect themselves and their families.
