Title: Exploring Linkages Between Health Outcomes and Environmental Hazards,
Exposures, and Interventions for Public Health Tracking and Risk Management


Open Date: 05/07/2009 - Close Date: 08/05/2009

Summary: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its
Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is seeking applications to develop
new or improved environmental public health indicators (EPHIs) to build
linkages between environmental hazards, human exposures, and public health
outcomes. The aim of the research is to develop indicators that can be used
for long-term tracking and surveillance of environmental public health, making
better informed decisions, and assessing the actual impacts of environmental
risk management decisions. Proposed projects should capitalize on existing
knowledge bases, data sources, or cohorts to develop EPHIs that reflect a
better understanding of the relationships between environmental conditions,
human exposure, and/or public health outcomes. Novel application of
statistical methods or models may be needed to establish probable
relationships between existing datasets or investigate the consequences of
environmental actions and policy changes.
