Title Slide for the EPA Risk Assessment Training and Experience (RATE) Course

Human Toxicology students participated in a Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Risk Assessment Course at the University of Iowa on October 2, 2017. The day long course was led by Dr. Xabier Arzuaga and Dr. Geniece Lehmann from the EPA.

Students were given an introduction to risk assessment, an overview of human health risk assessment, learned how toxicology research is used in human health risk assessment, and were given the chance to do a real risk assessment using the EPA's Exposure Factors Interactive Resource for Scenarios Tool.

Students received an EPA certificate at the end of the course.

Great Job!
