Inaugural Partnerships for Environmental Public Health Program Meeting

Research Triangle Park, North Carolina

Rodbell Auditorium

The Partnerships for Environmental Public Health (PEPH) program at the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is an umbrella program that brings together scientists, community members, educators, health care providers, public health officials, and policy makers in the shared goal of advancing the impact of environmental public health research at local, regional, and national levels.  By fostering local, regional, and national partnerships between and among community residents/organizations, researchers, and other stakeholders in the research process, vital information about the linkages between exposures and disease can be discovered and used to promote health and reduce the risk of disease across the populations at highest risk.

 

Meeting Objectives

  • Promote interaction among grantees of different grant programs, and investigator-initiated grantees
  • Advance common approaches across different grant programs
  • Increase awareness among grantees, NIEHS staff and federal partners of the diverse projects and variety of approaches to address environmental public health issues
    • Share models and approaches of research, communication, capacity building, evaluation and coordination
    • Distribute materials developed by grantees
  • Encourage feedback and input on gaps and opportunities for NIEHS involvement in environmental public health
