The MADRES Center is hosting a Pilot Projects Symposium to showcase the progress of our inaugural pilot grant awardees on December 8th from 11-1. The Pilot Projects Program supports one-year research projects that aim to address scientific gaps in our understanding of the unequal burden of adverse environmental health impacts in susceptible communities. The goal of the program is to advance environmental health disparities research while also increasing representation of members of health disparity populations in scientific and community-based research. The zoom link to join the event is: Email Zoe Birnhak ( for more information.
