Teaching Resources


This section provides free educational resources for people interested in teaching subjects related to public and environmental health. Resources have been gathered from fellow teachers, professors, non-teaching experts, and Internet and library resources.

The majority of these resources are from the United States. We plan to add information for other countries; if you know of additional resources, please email Maria at mwilliams@toxipedia.org. Thank you!


  • PowerPoint Presentations: our library of slideshows on topics including general toxicology, chemicals, ethics and the precautionary principle, health conditions, and the history of toxicology
  • K-12 Teaching Resources: our links to educational tools offered by various organizations (government, non-government, and business) addressing environmental health and environmental education
  • NWECT - INND.Toxipedia Tox Course Sept. 20-21,2011
  • GreenerViews - Steve Gilbert shares information and thoughts on the health effects of common chemical agents and places toxicology within the framework of our daily lives, and so much more.  
  • A Story of Health - Case-based learning has long been used in medical education. Our eBook grounds the science of health in stories of fictional people, their families, and communities to enable readers to explore the risk factors for disease as well as how to prevent disease and promote health and resilience. A Story of Health was developed by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR); the Collaborative on Health and the Environment (CHE); the University of California, San Francisco, Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit (UCSF PEHSU); the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, California EPA (OEHHA); and the Science and Environmental Health Network (SEHN).
