The Environmental Health Literacy and Translation Lab evaluates the role of environmental health literacy in helping communities better frame and respond to environmental health hazards.
Current projects incorporate disaster research, asthma and air pollution, and Indigenous environmental health.
Environmental Health Research includes research on the air, soil, sediment, water and food. We pair this research with research translation to ensure that communities, regulators and policy-makers have access to the research.
Environmental health research focuses on predominantly on human health impacts. This approach often does not resonate with Indigenous communities, wherein the environment, animals, plants and humans are inextricably intertwined.
