Environmental Health Institute

The Geisinger Center for Health Research and The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health joined together to form the Environmental Health Institute (EHI) in 2007. The mission of the EHI is to understand how land use, the built environment, energy production and use, food systems, and water systems may impact human health in central and northeastern Pennsylvania. Such knowledge can be used not only to improve the health of the Geisinger Health System's patients, but also to understand how to develop and promote healthy and sustainable communities.

Brian Schwartz, MD, MS, Professor, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health; Senior Investigator, Geisinger Center for Health Research serves as Director of the EHI.
