Project Description

This project is designed to build social capital and engage vulnerable Gulf Coast communities. These efforts include building environmental health capacity to deliver coordinated specialty care, integrating the role of community health workers as a viable and sustainable component of the health system, and embedding an environmental health science curriculum in public schools and universities across the region to promote environmental health literacy. The EHCLP has established three programs to achieve its goals: the Environmental Health Education and Referral Program, the Community Environmental Health Wellness Program, and the Environmental Health Literacy Program.
