Community Engagement Core

The goal of the EaRTH Center Community Engagement Core (CEC) is to bridge health professionals and researchers so that timely, environmental health research serves and protects public health. This “upstream” approach provides health professionals the knowledge and resources they need to understand and address their patients’ environmental health needs in the clinic while also creating a feedback loop permitting health professionals to inform researchers about their environmental health questions, research needs, and clinical educational gaps. To accomplish this, we integrate environmental health science and its clinical application into the foundation of learning that graduate-level and practicing healthcare professionals receive throughout their careers.
