The Community Engagement Core’s mission is to foster communication and collaboration among environmental health scientists and stakeholders (CBOs, clinicians, advocacy groups, policymakers) on the role of environmental exposures in children’s health, and strategies to build healthier environments, particularly in East Harlem and the South Bronx.
