Meeting Purpose

In 2009, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), with considerable input from the extramural community, established the Partnerships for Environmental Public Health (PEPH) program as a network of grantees and their partners with a commitment to community engagement to advance and promote environmental public health. The 10-year PEPH plan included a framework that emphasized four key elements: Research, Communication, Capacity Building, and Evaluation, and a coordination component to facilitate interactions across those elements. NIEHS hosted the first PEPH Meeting in 2010, which brought together grantees and their partners from different grant programs, including the Breast Cancer and the Environmental Research Program, the Children’s Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Research Centers, the Environmental Health Sciences Core Centers, the Superfund Research Program, the Worker Training Program, and more. It was a novel, cross-cutting meeting that promoted active dialogue and information sharing. Since 2010, we have convened numerous PEPH meetings focused on a variety of topics, such as Environmental Justice and Environmental Health Disparities, Environmental Health Literacy, and Reporting Back Research Results.

Ten years after the inaugural PEPH Meeting, we are bringing the network together to reflect on the past, discuss the present, and consider future opportunities. In addition to learning about strategies and approaches used to improve environmental public health, the PEPH2020 meeting will be an occasion to inform a new 10-year vision for the PEPH program in the context of the NIEHS Strategic Plan and the new Translational Research Framework. PEPH2020 is being organized around the four key elements of PEPH to guide discussions. Feedback and ideas shared by meeting participants will be used by NIEHS staff to formulate an updated concept, which will be presented to the NAEHS Council later in 2020.
