Strengthening Environmental Justice Research and Decision-Making: A Symposium on the Science of Disproportionate Environmental Health Impacts

March 17-19, 2010
Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Washington, DC

The overall goal of the Symposium is to lay the foundation for developing analytical and decision frameworks that can be used by EPA and other federal, state, and local governments to better quantify and characterize disproportionate environmental health impacts on minority and low-income populations that
may result from their programs, policies, and activities. The Symposium will feature interdisciplinary presentations, discussions, and technical input on the scientific bases for factors that may cause disproportionate environmental health impacts, and frameworks for assessing disproportionate burdens of environmental exposures and disease.

Registration will be open to the general public on December 15, 2009.
