This ScienceServ explores the emerging science on numerous environmental factors that contribute to a variety of human diseases. We understand that the basis of sound policy and action is updated and contextualized scientific knowledge, which must be disseminated and digested collectively. As such, we aim to provide an international space for health professionals, scientists, researchers, community groups, government agents, and the health-affected to connect, share, and discuss the newest science on environmental contributors to disease. We do this by distributing influential research articles, news updates, and hosting partnership calls featuring new research, cutting-edge methodology, and innovative efforts to address the environmental contributors to health outcomes.
The ScienceServ is co-coordinated by Ted Schettler, MD, MPH, science director of the Science and Environmental Health Network and science advisor for CHE, and Michael Lerner, PhD, president of Commonweal.
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.
