Emerging environmental health research suggests that social stressors may modify the risk of exposure to environmental hazards. The purpose of this workshop is to share some of the emerging research findings with environmental health researchers, regulatory scientists and regulatory analysts to increase awareness. This workshop also will provide a platform for discussing opportunities to apply this research toward environmental health protection.


  1. Share knowledge on biological pathways through which chronic psychosocial stress and social context may adversely influence health;
  2. Highlight and discuss emerging toxicological and epidemiological data on the interactions between social context, chronic psychosocial stress and exposures to environmental hazards; and
  3. Stimulate discussion on research and methods to advance the practical application of this type of information in health assessments at EPA.
