SRP Centers Webinar Series:

Superfund Research Program would like to invite you to our upcoming “Progress in Research” webinar series featuring the Superfund Research Center grants awarded in 2020. These Multiproject Center Grants support problem-based, solution-oriented research teams integrating projects in biomedical sciences, environmental science & engineering, data management, community engagement, research translation, and graduate training. This series will highlight the research underway in these Centers, providing an overview of the complex issues each Center addresses as well as highlights of each of the projects and cores. The webinars are free and open to the public.

Next PEPH WebinarCommunity Engagement at a Distance – Maintaining Trusting Partnerships

Date: October 29, 2020 • 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. EDT

Registration (required):https://nih.zoomgov.com/meeting/register/vJIsd-urqDguHks5tCnL9QHgLT4EpVVuOK4

Description: Last month we heard about strategies being used by projects working with educators and students to engage safely and meaningfully as we continue to physically distance during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this webinar, we will hear from three community-engaged research projects that have been devising strategies to sustain their community partnerships during the pandemic. As we all know, face-to-face work is essential to building and maintaining trust with community partners when conducting authentic community-engaged research. However, when social and physical distancing are required to protect public health, new ways of nurturing the relationships and meeting research aims are needed. These challenges can be heightened when the academic and community partners are already geographically separated.

The webinar will highlight three unique projects addressing different community environmental concerns and questions. One project focuses on industrial exposures in rural Appalachian communities. Another addresses arsenic exposures in drinking water on tribal lands in North and South Dakota. The third highlights efforts to understand exposures and health effects from brominated flame-retardants in communities throughout Michigan. Co-presented by community and academic partners, the teams will describe the challenges faced and the strategies they are using to sustain their relationships and meet the project aims.
