Envirome Institute

The Christina Lee Brown Envirome Institute’s research unites a multidisciplinary group of physicians, scientists, chemists, engineers, epidemiologists, economists, psychologists, statisticians, sociologists, and community members to turn scientific discovery into actionable knowledge that can help us to build healthier cities by:

learning the effects of our environments on health, increasing understanding of environmental health risks, studying how differences in urban environments create give rise to health disparities, investigating how changes in environments affect health outcomes and disease risk, creating a new curriculum for environmental health research, and developing new models for healthy, urban living.
