Environments, including those in the built, social, and physical environments, can have negative effects on individuals’ and communities’ health. These environmental exposures are more detrimental to disadvantaged and under-resourced communities, as well as racial and ethno minority groups. Because of the interconnectedness of the environment and individual-and structural-level social factors that affect health, it is vital to ensure equitable implementation and monitoring of policies, programs, interventions and policies that prevent and mitigate these environmental exposures. Implementation science is the study and application of evidence-based programs and policies in community, public and clinical settings. This workshop will explore how environmental health specialists can use implementation science in order to help develop, adapt, implement and scale up interventions, practices and policies to prevent or mitigate potentially harmful environmental exposures, and ultimately improve environmental health equity.

Workshop Goals

  1. To bring together implementation scientists and environmental health scientists to discuss the current state of their respective disciplines in research on health disparities and how they can use implementation science to improve environmental health equity.
  2. To identify research gaps and research opportunities to promote equitable implementations of evidence-based environmental health interventions in the areas of health disparity and environmental justice.
  3. To identify the resources, training, capacity building, and opportunities for collaboration that support the use implementation science to advance environmental health equity.

Workshop Topics

These are some of the topics covered in workshops:

  • What is Implementation Science and Why Does It Matter for Environmental Health Health?
  • Implementation Science within the Context of Environmental Health Disparities & Environmental Justice Research
  • Evidence-Based Prevention & Interventions
  • Emerging Environmental Health Issues (e.g., climate change, disasters)
  • Multi-Sectoral Partnerships & Community Partnerships
