As part of its Partnerships for Environmental Public Health (PEPH) Program, NIEHS is interested in developing tools that build capacity, improve environmental health literacy, and support citizen science endeavors. In addition, there is a need for improved approaches for communicating Environmental Health Science concepts for diverse audiences, including K-12 education, undergraduate and graduate education, and information for health care professionals. These approaches or resources should be fit-for-purpose to meet the needs of the following audiences: community members, health care and public health professionals, educators, and students of all ages. Approaches may include:

  • Interactive digital media (IDM) that provide environmental health information about exposures of concern in food, air, water, or consumer products. These may include:
    • IDM that provide the context for the exposures such as single or multiple, interacting exposures, level of exposure, frequency, and proximity to source
    • IDM that can be adapted for various age groups (e.g., children or the elderly), races, ethnicities and/or languages
    • IDM that visualize exposure risks with respect to levels of exposure, sources and health risks
  • Devices for collecting and reporting information on exposures in environmental samples (e.g., air, water or soil) for educational purposes in schools or communities
  • Systems that can utilize public and voluntary population data on exposures from sensors, activity trackers, GIS enabled devices, social communications, and surveillance cameras; for example, to assist disaster response and communication (e.g., risk or health effects)
  • Educational resources related to environmental health in school settings or community education programs (e.g., Photovoice projects or GIS mapping)
  • Training materials for wider dissemination of risk information (e.g., for community leaders to build research capacity of other community residents).
  • Continuing medical education classes, on-line courses, or on-line tools to build the environmental health literacy of health care professionals
  • Applicants should provide clear, quantifiable milestones for the proposed research.

Proposed technologies must address education and capacity building for Environmental Health topics; approaches that cover general STEM education without addressing EHS concepts will be considered non-responsive to this solicitation.
