Title: The Journal of Environmental Health

The Journal of Environmental Health
  • published by National Environmental Health

Arlene AndersonLIBR 155Fall 2005
  • The Journal of Environmental Health is the
    official publication of the National
    Environmental Health Association (NEHA). NEHA
    originated in the state of California where it
    was incorporated in 1937 a national corporate,
    non-profit, professional association. The
    professional society was created for
    environmental health practitioners in order to
    establish a standard of excellence for the
    developing profession. This standard is known as
    the Registered Environmental Health Specialist or
    Registered Sanitarian credential.

  • The standard signifies that an environmental
    health professional has mastered a body of
    knowledge, demonstrated through passing an
    examination, and has acquired sufficient
    experience to perform work responsibilities in
    the environmental health field. NEHA a non-profit
    organization is dedicated to the advancement of
    environmental health professionals.

  • Since 1977, NEHA has offered its members the
    opportunity to develop a national network of
    professional contacts, and to participate
    actively in efforts to promote a cleaner more
    healthful environment.

  • The association today stands as a strong
    professional society with over 4,500 members
    across the nation. NEHAs mission is to advance
    the environmental health and protection
    professional for the purpose of providing a
    healthful environment for all, which is as true
    today as it was when the organization was founded.

  • The basis for the associations activities is the
    belief that the professional who is educated and
    motivated is the professional who will make the
    greatest contribution to the healthful
    environmental goals which are sought. Great
    emphasis is placed on providing, through each of
    NEHAs programs, an educational as well as
    motivational opportunity.

The Journal reaches more than 20,000
professionals working to solve problems in areas
such as
  • - air quality terrorism and all-hazards
  • preparedness
  • - drinking water
  • - food safety and protection
  • - hazardous materials/toxic substances
  • - institutional environmental health
  • - occupational safety and health
  • - wastewater management
  • - vector control
  • - water pollution control/water quality

  • NEHA employs 26 paid professionals, 21 full-time
    and 5 part-time or contract staff, dedicated to
    providing quality programs to the NEHA membership.

Board of Directors
  • The association is governed by a fifteen-member
    board of directors that is chaired by the
    associations president. NEHA has five national
    officers (second vice president, first vice
    president, president-elect, president and
    immediate past president) who serve on the
    associations executive committee.

Board of Directors
  • Nine Regional Vice Presidents each represent one
    region of the nation. A tenth Regional Vice
    President represents NEHAs national affiliates
  • Industry Affiliate
  • Uniformed Services
  • National Association of Noise Control

Committees Technical Sections
  • Serving under the associations board of
    directors is an array of administrative and
    functional committees. Members may participate in
    the association through other committees that are
    organized within 13 distinct technical sections,
    which for NEHAs purposes, essentially divide the
    environmental field.

Committees Technical Sections
  • The 13 sections are
  • Air/Land
  • Environmental Health
  • Drinking Water Quality/Water Pollution
  • Emerging Pathogens/Vector control and Zoonotic
  • diseases
  • Environmental Health Leadership Development
    Environmental Health Research
  • Food Safety and Protection
  • General Environmental Health
  • Hazardous Materials and Toxic Substances
  • Injury Prevention/Occupational Health Materials
    and Toxic
  • Substances
  • Injury Prevention/Occupational Health
  • Institutions and Schools Environmental
  • Onsite Wastewater Systems, and
  • Terrorism and All-Hazards Preparedness.

  • Some 4,500 NEHA members practice their profession
    in the public and private sectors, as well as,
    academia and the uniformed services with a
    majority being employed by state and local county
    health departments. In addition, NEHAs Journal
    of Environmental Health has subscribers in over
    40 countries around the world.

  • Because it encompasses the entire environmental
    health profession this single
  • organization serves as the forum
  • for discussion and can address the broad
    spectrum of environmental health issues. NEHA
    works to advance the Environmental Health
    professional and by doing so also improves the
    environment in cities, towns, and rural areas
    throughout the world to create a more healthful
    environment and quality of life for all.

  • The only mention of finances that I found are the
    Articles of Incorporation, which means this is a
    private enterprise and they do not have to
    disclose any financial reports to the public.
  • Articles of Incorporation Bylaws
  • Article V

NEHA Awards
  • The National Environmental Health Associations
    highest honor is the Walter S. Mangold Award it
    consists of a cash honorarium and a crystal
    mounted on a marble designed base, it is named
    for a man of action who became an inspiration to
    thousands of environmental health professionals
    who followed him into the field.
  • The late Walter S. Mangold was a sanitarian in
    California at a time when environmental health
    was just developing into a profession, with its
    own educational requirements and performance
    standards. Mangold also was instrumental in the
    founding of NEHAs predecessor, the National
    Association of Sanitarians, in California.
  • Mangold later became Professor of Public Health
    at the University of California School of Public
