Community Participation and Education Section
The Community Participation & Education section provides expertise in public participation,
outreach, and education for the Environmental Health Investigations Branch (EHIB).
We guide EHIB activities to ensure that they respond to communities' environmental health concerns, foster partnership, address priority issues, and instill accountability.
We provide training in risk communication and other topics, develop environmental health education materials, facilitate public forums, serve as a liaison between communities and government agencies, and collaborate with researchers on study development and design.
Check out our video, which shows how our program works with communities to increase health and environmental equity.
Who We Are
We are health professionals, including scientists, data managers, and health educators, dedicated to
