Man Giving Interview

Promote bidirectional communication and collaboration between researchers and stakeholders, e.g., policy-makers, clinicians, intervention and prevention practitioners, and the public, in order to advance research translation in the environmental health sciences.

  1. Promote NIEHS as a trusted and accessible source of EHS-based information and increase reach and effectiveness in communication and outreach.
  2. Identify and expand our relevant stakeholder communities and enhance engagement to understand their priorities, concerns, and needs related to EHS.
  3. Build and lead long-term federal and nonfederal partnerships with health education agencies and mission-related stakeholder groups, to create a pipeline for the coordination of disseminating scientific results to the public and to hear back from constituents.
  4. Conduct research, as needed, on effective EHS communication strategies, including risk communication and public health.
  5. Develop an integrated, searchable knowledge base on the impact of the environment on health.
