UNC Center for Environmental Health and Susceptibility

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.
CEHS Spotlight: SciVentures

In partnership with Morehead Planetarium and Science Center, the Community Outreach and Engagement Core (COEC) of the UNC-CH CEHS developed a new environmental health focused program for Morehead’s SciVentures summer enrichment camp for middle school students. “Journey Inside the Cell” introduced students to the hidden lives of cells through hands-on learning experiences and exposure to CEHS scientists conducting cutting-edge research to promote health and fight disease.

Pilot Projects Program

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.
