Environmental Health Toolkits and Other Resources

An important part of the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry’s (ATSDR) work involves providing guidance and increasing the capacity of professionals in the environmental health field. Listed below are ATSDR toolkits and other resources.

  • ATSDR Communication Toolkit (ACT)
    Community members are key participants in the public health assessment process, and effective communication is a critical part of fostering trusting relationships. ATSDR site team members’ use of ACT will help ensure that all communication is clear, relevant, and appropriate for the various audiences. Additionally, using ACT will ensure that all teams are providing consistent communication. www.atsdr.cdc.gov/communications-toolkit/index.html
