[Webinar] Information Systems to Advance Environmental Justice (United States)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is continuing its highly successful training webinar series to build the capacity of state environmental justice practitioners.

The first webinar in 2020 on “ Information Systems to Advance Environmental Justice, ” scheduled to take place on September 10 at 1:00 EDT, is now open for registration.

Advancing environmental justice requires refined information on environmental emissions and exposures, health effects, and social determinants of health. This is in addition to screening level information available through EJ mapping tools from California and other states as well as EPA. For this reason, we are providing three examples of cutting-edge data systems on environment and public health, i.e., Wisconsin DOH’s Environmental Public Health Tracking Program, Texas CEQ’s emission events database, and EPA’s Toxic Release Inventory.

Speakers:

  • Constance Bell , Health Educator, Bureau of Environmental and Occupational Health, Division of Public Health, Wisconsin Department of Health
  • Cynthia Gandee, Special Assistant, Coastal and East Texas Area, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality Office of Compliance and Enforcement
  • Shelley Fudge , Environmental Justice and Tribal Coordinator, Toxic Release Inventory Program, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

Registration is required. Registered participants will receive details on how to access the webinar closer to the date of the session.
