We strive to provide relevant, accurate, and accessible data on environmental health hazards and related health impacts. In addition to building and maintaining this web-based surveillance system, Colorado Tracking contributes data to the national network and makes information accessible to public health workers, policymakers, healthcare providers, environmental practitioners, and the public.
EnviroScreen is a powerful new mapping tool for environmental justice. This tool is one way Colorado addresses current and historic inequities. The mapping tool aims to:
