Cumulative exposures, health risks, and other impacts experienced in diverse populations

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine seek suggestions for subject matter experts and community liaisons to participate in a new study on cumulative impact assessment, “State-of-the-Science and the Future of Cumulative Impact Assessment.” Further, the new study will address the need to understand better and manage cumulative exposures, health risks, and other impacts experienced in diverse populations. National Academies staff are forming a committee of approximately 15 volunteer experts in risk assessment, public health, community-engaged participatory research, and sociology. For more information about the call for experts and community liaisons on the new study “State-of-the-Science and the Future of Cumulative Impact Assessment,” please visit the link below. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency sponsors the new study; the deadline is at the end of this week on Friday, February 16, 2024.

“Using an interdisciplinary approach, this work will explore the state-of-the-science of cumulative impact assessment and its application at the community, state, and national levels. The work will entail public workshops, community and tribal engagement, and a broad array of consulted scientific expertise. It will build from prior National Academies reports highlighting the need to better characterize and manage cumulative exposures, health risks, and other impacts experienced in diverse populations. Overall, the aim is to highlight key opportunities and challenges to advancing the science and practice of cumulative impact assessment in an integrated social-environmental framework.”
