Promoting Environmental Health in Native American Communities: A Webinar Series Addressing the Environmental Health and Exposure Concerns of North American Native Subsistence Populations

The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) STAR Research Grants Program, in partnership with the National EPA-Tribal Science Council, conducted a webinar series designed to translate and disseminate recent findings of previous and current STAR-funded research addressing the environmental health and exposure concerns of North American Native subsistence populations. Additional support for the project was provided by the EPA Office of Children’s Health Protection and Environmental Education and the Human Health Research Program.

The series highlighted research goals and preliminary findings of newly awarded projects focused on cumulative risk and climate change. These projects may particularly appeal to those interested in novel risk assessment methods or the potential direct and indirect impacts of global warming on the health outcomes to Alaska Natives. The results discussed in these webinars may be of particular interest to Agency risk assessors, Tribal environmental managers, and Tribal health care practitioners.

This seminar series featured Tribal communities and their research partners conducting dietary exposure, cumulative risk, climate change health effects, and risk reduction research that aimed to quantify and reduce environmental risks and to encourage or restore traditional, healthy ways of life for American Native communities.

    Specific objectives of the Webinar Series included:

    1. Understanding and reviewing research findings.
    2. Exploring new strategies, methods, and tools for assessing environmental health exposure among Tribal populations.
    3. Identifying research opportunities for advancing health protection and maintaining traditional Tribal ways of life.

The series consisted of four webinars conducted from June 30, 2009 to December 10, 2009:
