A burgeoning federal interagency working group (involving 25 different agencies) is currently focused on Exposure Science in 21st Century. Specifically, there are five topic areas of interest, including community engagement and citizen science to improve the real-time understanding of what is taking place. The Summit brings a critical local, community, state and industry dimension to further support the interagency efforts. Like this six previous Environmental Health Summits convened by The Collaborative, the goal is generating a work product with meaningful and actionable recommendations from the Technology, Data and Risk Communications Work Groups.
