Community Outreach and Engagement Core

About Us

The Community Outreach and Engagement Core (COEC) works to provide research information from the Center of Excellence in Environmental Toxicology’s (CEET) research team to community, professional, and public health decision-makers in order to improve clinical and public health. CEET receives grant support from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (P30ES013508). Concerned with the effects on vulnerable populations including children, the elderly, and underserved populations, the COEC develops models and approaches to community environmental health. The COEC brings community concerns to the Center to guide environmental research ideas that affect the community’s health. Some community environmental problems are investigated using Community-Based Participatory Research, making the citizens the scientists. We currently work in 6 communities affected by various environmental issues: West Philadelphia, Chester, South Philadelphia, Eastwick, Northeast PA Communities with Hydraulic Fracturing, and Lancaster County. Scroll over the pictures and learn more about the communities and their environmental issues.
