Event Details

The theme for this year's conference is Environmental Injustice and Health Disparities in South Carolina: Translation of Research to Action.  The CAPS EJ Conference and Summit will focus on environmental public health and social justice issues, particularly how social injustice can lead to negative environmental conditions and outcomes for disadvantaged, vulnerable, and underserved populations at thelocal, state and regional level, as well as grassroots efforts and community-academic partnerships.  This CAPs conference and summit will offer a variety of traditional sessions including posters, oral and plenary sessions in addition to professional development training sessions for a diverse audience representing academicians, health professionals, community members and students.   The conference has as its aims: 1) to educate conference participants about research on environmental public health issues related to social justice; 2) to increase collaborations between community groups, health professionals, and academicians through its program activities, especially sessions in which scientists and community members can share ideas and discuss common goals; 3) to educate students, especially those from underserved and minority communities, about social justice, environmental justice, and environmental health, encouraging them to pursue careers in public health research and practice and 4) to provide a forum for dissemination of results about research in social justice, environmental justice, and environmental health. The CAPS conference and summit agenda will benefit participants greatly, from community members who will have the opportunity to present their work and network with other community groups and with environmental health scientists and professionals in the field, to students who will have the opportunity to connect with potential mentors, and to researchers who will learn about community based environmental justice initiatives.
