Community Engagement Core

Community Engagement Core 

One of the main priorities of the UC Davis Environmental Health Sciences Center (EHSC) is to help develop partnerships between environmental health researchers and the communities where they work. EHSC’s Community Engagement Core works with researchers and community groups to help build these relationships, which focus on the San Joaquin Valley and other areas throughout California.
