Welcome to the Environmental Health Language Collaborative (EHLC).

We are a community for anyone who generates, analyzes, or manages environmental health sciences (EHS) data and wants to ensure the data are formatted using a common EHS language to promote data discovery, interoperability, and reuse in spirit of the NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy.

We welcome diverse representation of expertise, needs, and scientific interests to make this a successful and sustainable community.
