We are excited about your interest in the Environment and Health Scientific Interest Group. The overall goal is to encourage collaborative, productive, and impactful work in SOL on the relationship between aspects of physical, built, and social environments (including residential, work) and health in this cohort. Specific objectives are: 1) To encourage early career investigators in collaboration with SOL investigators on environmental health projects; 2) to advise and facilitate development of ancillary studies and manuscript proposals; 3) to facilitate cooperation, synergy and collaboration between established SOL investigators, EH-relevant ancillary studies, and investigators new to SOL.

The Environment and Health SIG meets monthly on the first Wednesday at 3 pm Eastern / 12 pm Pacific.
