What is a health consultation?

A health consultation is a report that provides advice on a public health issue related to human exposure to a hazardous substance. A health consultation is a response to an environmental public health question. It is not the same as a medical exam, community health study, or public health assessment. A health consultation is a way for the Tennessee Department of Health Environmental Epidemiology Program, to respond to a need for health information about a hazardous substance and to make recommendations to protect the public’s health.
