Professional Statement

Dr. Hamilton is director of the Environmental Health Service at Baylor College of Medicine, and has received numerous awards for her work in environmental health, including the U.S. EPA’s Children’s Environmental Health Champion Award. She has a particular interest in the use of geospatial modeling to assess hot spots of disproportionate exposure and/or health effects, and in the education of health care professionals with regard to the importance of environmental exposures in their practices. In 2014, the Environmental Health Service expanded into clinical care, opening the first-ever academically grounded environmental health clinics in the multistate area.
