Wednesday April 19th 

Short course (1-5pm): Tools for Toxicologists: EPA Resources to Support Environmental Health

Location: Dept of Natural Resources Auditorium

Leads: Molly Jenkins, Anne Neal, Brittany Jackson (U.S. EPA)

Objectives: After completing this short course, users (regardless of technical background) will feel more confident in navigating EPA’s EnviroAtlas & EJScreen tools to support integrated environmental toxicology. Users will be able to map relevant data, download data for use outside of the tools, and utilize built-in analysis tools to enhance the integration of environmental and demographic data. Users will leave the training empowered to use the tools to serve overburdened and environmentally at-risk communities, support the coproduction of knowledge with those communities, and collaborate effectively across disciplines and technical abilities to enhance problem-solving.
