We are pleased to announce our Fall 2021 cohort of EH MATTERs (Environmental Health MethodologicAl, Training, and Teaching EnterpRiSe) Fellows. This program offers training to the next generation environmental health and justice scholars at USC. Five students from multiple disciplines were selected to grow environmental health and justice knowledge and experiential learning under the mentors of EH MATTERS Faculty members. Fellows have completed the first semester of research and training online and a set to embark on a more intensive summer program research experience.
These fellows are actively working on a broad range of research topics and issues including: health projects related to air pollution, climate change and wildfire exposures; maternal prenatal and postpartum cardiovascular health; climate thermal inequality; and oil and gas impacts on women’s health.
