The Center for a Livable Future (CLF) at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has launched a Web site to enable research on the critical links between agriculture and public health. The Agriculture & Public Health Gateway is a unique information resource for public health and agricultural professionals, advocacy and community organizations, policy makers, journalists, and educators.
“Public health and agriculture are intricately linked, and there is a growing interest in the complicated connections between them,” said Dr. Robert Lawrence, director of the Center for a Livable Future. “The Gateway places important and reliable information about these connections in one central location and makes it easy to access. We hope all who are concerned about a sustainable food system and about improving the health of the public will benefit from this resource.”
