In this webinar, Mónica Ramírez-Andreotta will describe participatory research methods to advance exposure science and communication strategies to visualize and translate environmental health research to action. She will present co-generated environmental monitoring and exposure assessment data (e.g., arsenic and heavy metal concentrations in water, soil, locally grown food, dust) from community science projects, Gardenroots and Project Harvest.

Our speaker is Mónica Ramírez-Andreotta, M.P.A., Ph.D. who is an Associate Professor of Environmental Science and Public Health at the University of Arizona. Using an environmental justice framework and participatory research methods, she investigates exposure pathways and communication strategies to translate environmental health research to action and achieve structural change.
