Miryha Runnerstrom

I am an Assistant Professor of Teaching in the Program of Public Health at the University of California, Irvine. I teach courses on principles of public health (PH1), case studies in public health (PH2), writing for public health (PH195W), environmental quality and health (PH60), health and global environmental change (PH173), and public health and wellness (PH150). I also teach the public health honors thesis course (PH H192). My research interests include behavioral and environmental influences on health and well-being, as well as how rapid global environmental changes are affecting the health of the world's populations.
