Non-SOT Event: Environmental Justice Boot Camp: Theory and Methods to Study Environmental Health Dis

Starts:  Aug 15, 2024 09:00 AM (ET)
Ends:  Aug 16, 2024 05:00 PM (ET)

Presented by the Columbia SHARP Program, this two-day boot camp will provide environmental health scientists with training in environmental justice research. The boot camp’s multi-disciplinary approach will cover the steps involved in conducting informed, effective, and solution-driven environmental justice and health disparities research. Our team consists of scientists with over 30 years of combined research in the fields of environmental health, sociology, epidemiology, health policy, community engagement, and biostatistics. Lectures will cover key concepts, frameworks, and methods for conducting environmental justice research. We will then build on this knowledge with hands-on learning experiences from case studies that allow participants to apply real-world datasets to address key research questions in environmental health and health disparities using exposure assessment techniques, epidemiologic methods, and analytic approaches, such as interaction and mediation. Please note: while community-based participatory research methods are important for EJ research, we are unable to cover them in-depth during this training.

Investigators from any institution and from all career stages are welcome to attend, and we particularly encourage trainees and early-stage investigators to participate.

Capacity is limited. Paid registration is required to attend.
