IGNITE is a program that implements flipped/active learning. Students are introduced to new information and studies individually at home while classwork is mainly focused on hands-on learning activities and labs. This method engages and assists students through creative and innovative outlets, creating an interactive, engaging environment for students to learn. The instructor guides students through new information and studies to emphasize individual learning, allowing students to advance and

take initiative towards a brighter, more innovative future.

The theme of this program is to focus on the existing child labor laws by state and designed a child labor law (CLL) scale to compare reported injury rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to the CLL scale. We hypothesized that states with better child labor laws would have lower reported injury rates in child and youth workers.

Intensive IVY LEAGUE Program

2022

The theme of this program is to focus on the question of how the greenness of a neighborhood affects wellness and risk perception through lectures on neighborhood indicators of greenness, psychosocial stress, and environmental pollution. We will also examine how air pollution can impact mental health.

The theme of this program is to focus on Ergonomics on students and faculty from different fields. Through joint public health research, the goal is to make the design of objects, systems, and environment used for humans easier to use in scientific ways by considering physical and cognitive characteristics.

2020

The 2020 research program focused on changes in air pollution during COVID-19 within areas of differing socioeconomic status in NYC. Upon completing the finalized paper, we have submitted our abstract to be presented at the 2021 APHA Annual Meeting & Expo. The APHA Annual Meeting & Expo is a conference where public health professionals can interact and engage with peers regarding latest research on public health. The conference encourages promoting best practices along with advocating for public health issues rooted in research-supported discoveries.

This summer we will continue to explore the research and practice of Environmental Science and Public Health/Public Policy by focusing on West Berkeley / Berkeley Station, California. We will be examining the area's air quality issues, neighborhood equality, and health challenges to deepen our understanding of how rail activity contributes to local pollution. We plan to look at how rail activity increases air pollutant concentrations near to train tracks. We will examine the rail activity and the air pollution in West Berkeley / Berkeley Station. Students will have the opportunity to try their hand at collecting field data for social and environmental information with SIDEPAK Air monitor. The goal for this summer program is to help the students pose a hypothesis and then write a scientific paper to verify or disprove it.

The main research question may be to quantify how much air pollution seems to be coming from the industrial parts of Richmond (especially the oil refinery) compared to general traffic emissions.

2018

The students continued to explore the research and practice of Environmental Science and Public Health by focusing on Richmond, California. Richmond is a diverse community on the north eastern portion of the San Francisco Bay Area. Richmond is a place with many public health challenges and opportunities for innovation and improvement. The students examined the air quality issues, neighborhood equality, and health challenges to deepen their understanding of how pubic health research and practice is in the real-world. They looked at air quality from the traditional to the innovative methods of measurement and evaluated neighborhoods for positive and negative community aspects. The students had the opportunity to try their hand at collecting field data for health, social and environmental information. The goal of the 2018 program was to help the students pose a hypothesis and then write a scientific paper to answer it.

2017

U.C. Berkeley faculty and students from diverse across academic areas (Public Health, Law, Business, Environmental Studies- and Technology) share expertise to find innovative solutions to pressing current issues. As a participant, you could join them to work on subjects like Global Health with Environmental Issues. Students visited Silicon Valley companies and interacted with them: some of these are Google, Autodesk, Intel, PLUG & PLAY (several start ups and Global Network Business).

 

They also visited the Sacramento State Capitol Dept. of Environment and Alameda County City Hall along with excursions Santa Cruz Beach, the Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39 and many more exciting destinations!
