Environmental Health and Environmental Justice
Many communities face health risks that are worse than surrounding communities. Environmental factors and economic and social challenges can cause some of those risks. A lack of trust between residents and government can worsen them. Our programs seek to engage communities to identify health concerns and take action on environmental health problems to improve health and quality of life and to build mutual trust, understanding, and respect.
