Welcome to the Massachusetts Environmental Public Health Tracking (MA EPHT) Program Website
This website is designed to provide you with access to health and environmental information for
Massachusetts. It was developed as part of a national effort by the US Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention to make environmental health data more available to the public and policymakers.
The information available through the MA EPHT Program includes:
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Childhood Lead Levels
Hospitalization for Asthma and Heart Attack
Childhood Lead Poisoning
Drinking Water Quality
A key feature of this website is that you can make tables, charts, and maps of environmental and health data for the community that you live in. This website also provides important background information including limitations associated with the data. It is important to stress that the data cannot be used to determine the cause of disease. They can be used to identify areas where public health actions can be taken.
We look forward to sharing this important information with you and welcome your comments and suggestions as we move forward.
