Description:

To better define ORD's Environmental Public Health Outcomes (EPHO) research agenda, a workshop was held 7/30-31/2002 at EPA facilities in Research Triangle Park, NC. The intent of this workshop was to engage federal and other organizations in a dialog that will assist ORD in developing a framework to guide this research program, identifying potential near-term research areas and pursuing opportunities to collaborate with other public health agencies and organizations. A total of 47 attendees met to discuss aspects of near-term research planning that would involve broad collaborations between several federal agencies in assessing environmental public health outcomes. Discussions on the first day focused on topics emanating from the draft ORD Human Health Research Strategy's Chapter three including: 1) are the approaches proposed reasonable and realistic first steps in initiating an EPHO Research Program, 2) are there other areas/activities to consider in the early stages, 3) are there existing data sets/resources that may be useful and, 4) are there ongoing/planned activities within your organization or agency that may be appropriate for collaboration?
