Community Engagement Core (CEC)
The CEC is a division of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) funded, Center for Environmental Genetics (CEG). We support the mission of the CEG by translating environmental human health science into easily understandable information, tools, and resources, as well as fostering relationships between CEG scientists and the greater community.
What Are the Aims of the CEC?
Increasing awareness & understanding of environmental health issues for youth, teachers, students (of all ages!), community members, doctors, nurses, and policymakers.
Increasing dialogue among CEG scientists and communities to stimulate and guide relevant community-engaged research activities.
Promoting the field of community engagement through citizen science practices, new communication approaches, and data sharing.
