Abstract

Alison Cohen, PhD, MPH, an epidemiologist from the University of California Berkeley, will provide an overview of what community-based participatory research entails and how knowledge generated from such research can inform policy. She will then discuss the process of conducting a community-based participatory environmental health survey in the industrial zone of Marseille, France, the products generated, and how research findings have gotten incorporated into policy conversations in the region and the country.
