This recorded webinar episode produced by the American Public Health Association describes the Environmental Justice Index (EJI), the first national, place-based tool designed to measure the cumulative impacts of environmental burden through the lens of human health and health equity. This webinar discusses the development of the EJI and provides a demonstration of the tool. Viewers can expect to learn how to use the EJI to identify and map areas most at risk for the health impacts of environmental burdens, educate and inform the public about their community, and prioritize action for frontline communities.
The webinar features two key speakers:
- Sharunda Buchanan, MS PhD | Director, Office of Priority Projects, Innovation, and Environmental Justice (CDC)
- Benjamin McKenzie, MS | Geospatial Epidemiologist; Coordinator of the Environmental Justice Index, ATSDR (CDC)
