CEHS researchers, staff and students conduct outreach activities that aim to engage community audiences and share CEHS research findings in order to raise awareness about environmental health issues and improve public health.
The Pilot Projects Program (PPP) stimulates innovative and collaborative research at the UNC-CH CEHS by providing short-term funding to investigators across campus who are either junior investigators in environmental research fields or established investigators in other fields who are exploring a new direction in environmental health science.
May is Melanoma Awareness Month! To help raise awareness about melanoma detection and prevention, the UNC CEHS hosted a one-hour webinar titled, “Childhood Sun Damage and Melanoma Risk: Understanding the Environmental Health Research and Clinical Application.” Dr. Bill Kaufmann, a CEHS cancer researcher, and Dr. Diana McShane, a pediatric dermatologist, discuss the latest research on childhood sun damage, melanoma risk, and how this research can be applied in clinical and educational settings to protect children and youth from this disease into their adulthood. The recorded webinar is now available for viewing.
