JHU team announces new community-engaged environmental health research center

Bloomberg School researchers have been awarded a $5.6 million Community Health Engagement Core Center grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. Housed in the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering, the center will lead an effort to build capacity in community-engaged research aimed at understanding the mechanistic links between environmental exposures and adverse health outcomes and translate these findings into action to improve the health of vulnerable individuals in communities across the Greater Maryland region. The center—called CHARMED, short for Community Health: Addressing Regional Maryland Environmental Determinants of Disease—seeks to build capacity to address community-identified environmental exposure and health burdens through community-engaged research partnerships
