Partnerships for Environmental Public Health (PEPH)

PEPH is a network of scientists, community members, educators, healthcare providers, public health officials, and policymakers who share the goal of increasing the impact of environmental public health research at the local, regional, and national level. PEPH defines environmental public health as the science of conducting and translating research into action to address environmental exposures and health risks of concern to the public.

Grantees: for information on how to access the PEPH Resource Center, please contact Liam O'Fallon or Kevin T. O'Donovan. You can also visit the NIEHS Research Partners webpage to access the Resource Center and other NIEHS shared datasets and applications.
