Citation:

Lobdell, D. Environmental Public Health Research at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency – Addressing Community Exposures and Outcomes from One Researcher’s Perspective. Univeristy of Wollongong, Wollongong, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA, September 21, 2017.

Impact/Purpose:

This is an invited presentation at the University of Wollongong in Australia. I have been asked to provide an overview of the environmental public health research I conduct, especially on the Environmental Quality Index. The goal is to establish research collaborations.

Description:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (U.S. EPA) mission is to protect human health and the environment. Those not familiar with U.S. EPA’s mission often do not realize that U.S. EPA is a public health agency. In this presentation, Dr. Danelle Lobdell will provide an overview of the environmental public health research she conducts at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. She will focus her presentation on the Environmental Quality Index her team has developed and now uses to explore how overall environmental Quality (air, water, land, built and sociodemographic environments) affect health outcomes. She will also describe community research projects she has conducted in partnership with U.S. EPA’s Regional Offices that include exposures related to air and water. This abstract does not necessarily reflect EPA policy.
