Health Impact Assessment: A Cutting Edge Tool for Bringing Public Health Science to Cross-Sector Policies

Friday, April 26, 2013 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

"Health Impact Assessment: A Cutting Edge Tool for Bringing Public Health Science to Cross-Sector Policies" Brenda Hoppe, PhD, Instructor, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety, College of Public Health and Human Sciences, Oregon State University.

Brenda Hoppe is a senior natural resource specialist for the Oregon Health Authority, performing research, modeling and data analysis related to climate change, health impact assessment, built environment and drinking water quality.

She earned a MS in Human Physiology at the University of Oregon and a Public Health PhD in Environment, Safety and Health at Oregon State University.

Her doctoral research involved modeling fine resolution agricultural nitrogen inputs to groundwater in order to characterize statewide exposures to nitrate in private well water. This work was applied to evaluating state-level data and policy for supporting public health surveillance of contaminant loading to private wells.

She is an instructor at OSU in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences. A native of Wisconsin, she's delighted to live and ride in Portland, one of the most 'skate friendly’ cities in the U.S., where skateboarding is recognized as a legitimate mode of transportation and world-class skateparks are part of the shared commons.
