The 2015-2016 Gils van Seventer Seminar Series will explore determinants of environmental health disparities, with a focus on emerging research on at-risk populations, impacts over the life-course, and research methods used to characterize multiple, cumulative exposures. The seminar will also examine the integration of research in environmental policy and interventions that work to promote health equity.
