Conrad (Dan) Volz, DrPH, MPH, assistant professor of environmental and occupational health, has been named the new director of the Certificate in Environmental Health Risk Assessment. The program was formerly directed by Nancy Sussman, PhD.
“Nancy really got the program off the ground,” Volz said. “I want to keep it running and let others in GSPH—especially those in environmental epidemiology—know about it.” Volz also wants to reach out to mid-level environmental health and science consulting professionals in the area to increase enrollment in the 15-credit certificate program. “We have over 50 such firms in the immediate Pittsburgh area, some quite large,” he said.
