Community Outreach and Engagement Core
The mission of the Community Outreach and Engagement Core of the Center for Environmental Genetics (CEG) is to establish mutually informative, bi-directional communication between CEG investigators and our stakeholders, who include:
- Community members
- Health care professionals
- Public health decision makers
The COEC, funded by the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), works to translate scientific research into practical health promotion, disease prevention information, and tools and resources for our target audiences. The COEC is particularly interested in engaging populations that are disproportionately affected by environmental contaminants and exposures. By communicating environmental health findings and translating CEG research to the community, the COEC ensures that scientific research does not remain confined to science labs.
