Health Hazards in the San Fernando Valley
The health and hazards project focuses on the San Fernando Valley (SFV) and consists of an interdisciplinary group of CSUN faculty members, students, community activists, and community organizations. One objective is to provide a basic resource about local healthcare providers, policy-makers, researchers, and activists.
Mapping where health hazards are and examining inequities is key to our central purpose; mapping can serve as an important research and dissemination tool. We also keep in mind that health exists in a context; we need to measure it and understand its consequences for all people.
