This program offers tailored and mentored translational experience in regulatory, legislative and community engagement for new researchers in children’s environmental health translation. New researchers will get the opportunity to use their own research in creating translational materials such as infographics, presentations, fact sheets, etc.
In addition to the translational product, each participant will meet with relevant stakeholders in the regulatory, legislative, community and non-profit realms. Through this experience, new researchers will build capacity to engage with stakeholders outside of academia and practice translating science to relevant audiences.
Many specialties can be a part of children’s environmental research from public health to bioinformatics, social sciences and communication. This program aims to enhance the capacity of new researchers to engage in translational activities. The focus of your research will guide the development of a new translational activity.
