A. Introduction

Welcome to the CSUN Risk Communication Forum!

The dual purpose of this Forum is to provide:
1. linkages to key sources of environmental health risk information, and
2. linkages to fellow professionals in the environmental health community.

There are two additional tools that we use in our educational programs at CSUN:
1. modules: educational orientation for the above linkages, and
2. quizzes: educational materials to test understanding of the modules.

Other relevant sites include:
1. Rand Study -- a study for CSUN educational strategic planning, and
2. Cornerstones -- CSU principles for educational reform.

If you have any recommendations on how to improve this forum, please drop me a line.
