New Book Examines Collaboration to Address Environmental Issues

Sep 23, 2019 | Michelle Shapiro

A new book, “Bridging Silos: Collaborating for Environmental Health and Justice in Urban Communities,” examines ways that community groups, government agencies, academic institutions, and private institutions each play a role in addressing environmental health issues and how they can collaborate to address environmental health disparities. The book presents in-depth studies of three efforts to address long-standing environmental health issues: childhood lead poisoning in Rochester, New York; unhealthy built environments in Duluth, Minnesota; and pollution related to commercial ports and international trade in Southern California. “Bridging Silos” was written by Katrina Smith Korfmacher, Ph.D., who directs the Community Engagement Core at the University of Rochester Environmental Health Sciences Center. The book is part of MIT Press Open Access initiative and is free to download; hard copies are available for purchase.
