The objectives of this Symposium are to:

  1. Describe the current state-of-the-science on factors associated with environmental health disparities to help understand how to incorporate these factors in decision making, and describe evidence of the contribution of social determinants to environmental health disparities or disproportionate impacts.
  2. Explore a variety of frameworks, analytical tools, and methods for assessing the environmental health impacts of environmental programs, policies, and activities on disadvantaged populations (e.g., minority and low-income populations) and identify opportunities to apply these frameworks, methods, and tools in environmental decision making.
  3. Identify short-term and long-term preliminary goals that could serve as a blueprint for an action agenda, including research and data needs that are necessary to ensure that environmental justice concerns and social disparities in environmental health are incorporated in EPA’s decisions.
