Swetland Center for Environmental Health’s October seminar to explore environmental health equity

The Swetland Center for Environmental Health will present its October seminar, "Embracing an Ecosocial Worldview: Examples of Community Engaged Teaching, Practice, and Research for Environmental Health Equity," Tuesday, Oct. 26, from 9 to 10 a.m. The seminar will be held virtually on Zoom.
Shanondora Billiot, assistant professor at Arizona State University, and Meredith C.F. Powers, assistant professor in the Department of Social Work at University of North Carolina Greensboro, will address the history of environmental, economic and racial injustices, and highlight community-engaged research and practice examples of working toward environmental health equity, particularly in Indigenous and other marginalized populations.
After the seminar, the lecturers will host a training consultation from 10:30 a.m. to noon, through which they will help attendees explore current and historical environmental concerns and reflect on how to embrace and apply a more ecosocial worldview in the context of research, teaching, practice and policy change.
