Environmental health and justice leaders

Agents of Change: Amplifying neglected voices in environmental justice

EHN is teaming up with Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health to bring you the voices of next generation environmental justice leaders

The face of science is changing.


Increased diversity within the world of environmental health research is spurring the innovative ideas and solutions to push our planet forward in a healthy, more just direction.

We're partnering with Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health to provide a space for the environmental health leaders of tomorrow to explore the intersection of research, health, diversity and justice.

"Agents of Change in Environmental Justice" is an ongoing series featuring the stories, analyses and perspectives of next generation environmental health leaders who come from historically under-represented backgrounds in science and academia.
