Risk and Resilience in Environmental Health

Baton Rouge Area Foundation

The overall goal of the project is to implement a rapidly deployable community-based research, outreach, and education program addressing risk and resilience in the context of environmental disasters. Through scientific, intervention implementation research, the Tulane team is 1) examining real or perceived risk to the health of fisher folk families along the Gulf Coast associated with two persistent exposure pathways of concern to them: seafood consumption and air, and 2) building sustained environmental health capacity in the Gulf Coast through a regional network of informed primary care providers and a community-based interventionist and navigation network.
