Cumulative Impacts ScienceServ

This ScienceServ explores the ways that combinations of environmental surroundings and stressors can impact human health through time. We do this by distributing influential research and news articles discussing the latest science, emerging best practices, analytical tools, environmental justice issues, and legal shifts that deal with the intersection of two or more environmental factors of health and disease outcomes. We work to create collaborative opportunities among researchers, advocates, patients, health care providers, public health professionals and others working at the intersection of multiple exposures. CHE Partnership calls feature new research calling for a precautionary decision structure and initiatives aimed at reducing total impacts on human health.

The CHE Cumulative Impacts ScienceServ works in partnership with The Science and Environmental Health Network (SEHN), along with an advisory group of environmental health and justice advocates, scientists, scholars, and agency staff members. The co-coordinators of this ScienceServ are Elise Miller, CHE’s director, and Carolyn Raffensperger, SEHN’s director.

See the Cumulative Impacts website for more information.

CHE does not take a stance on specific legislation nor sign petitions and the like. Rather, we investigate and discuss the scientific foundation for more health-protective policies in a civil tone. For posting guidelines and etiquette, please see our CHEtiquette.
