June CSTAC Meeting
June 28th, 2017 marked this year’s first bi-annual meeting of the Environmental Health Sciences Center’s Community Stakeholder’s Advisory Committee (CSTAC). Attendees, which included both CSTAC members and EHSC researchers, traveled from throughout the Central Valley to UC Merced where they spent the day exchanging updates, welcoming new members, and discussing the dimensions of equitable community-university research partnerships.
The Environmental Health Sciences Core Center's debut Academy Day, which took place on March 21, 2017, was a day of short seminars and interactive workshops for community members and nonprofit partners. Topics related to a Core Center funded, collaborative water quality project between Dr. Swee Teh's lab and the Community Water Center. Its broad goal was to build the capacity of academics and nonprofit partners to actively and meaningfully inform and engage in research collaborations.
