TITLE: Louisiana Environmental and Health Effects Tracking Program: A Partnership of Public Health and Environmental Regulatory Agencies THEME Foster Collaborations Among Health and the Environment KEYWORDS public health, environment, tracking, collaboration, partnerships BACKGROUND: The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals (LDHH), Office of Public Health (OPH) and the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ) frequently collaborate to promote and protect the environment and public health. This partnership is strengthened by Louisiana Legislative Act 666, an unfunded mandate requiring both agencies to assemble a working group of experts to develop a standardized environmental health surveillance system (EHSS). The proposed goal of the EHSS is to study environmental and social factors, and diseases affecting Louisiana residents to determine if environmental disease trends exist. In collaboration with LDEQ, LDHH/OPH applied for a Cooperative Agreement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Environmental Public Health Tracking Program (EPHT) to develop the Louisiana Environmental and Health Effects Tracking Program (LEHET). The LEHET will complete a demonstration project using selected existing data from LDEQ, OPH Safe Drinking Water Program (SDWP) and the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) Louisiana Tumor Registry (LTR). LDEQ groundwater data, SDWP drinking water data, and LTR cancer data associated with closed or abandoned wood preservation and treatment facilities will be compiled. These data will be analyzed for trends and possible further study.
