About the Program

The Women’s Health Awareness (WHA) Community Engagement Program is an innovative environmental health research, public health practice and advocacy initiative. The Program is located within the Office of Human Research and Community Engagement (OHRCE), Clinical Research Branch (CRB), National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). WHA engages women across North Carolina and beyond, with a focus on understudied, underrepresented, underreported, and underserved (U4) populations.

The Program has the following aims:

  • To provide evidence-based community health interventions to promote wellness, environmental health literacy, and environmental public health.
  • To examine and respond to environmental health disparities utilizing a racial and gender equity lens.
  • To advocate for environmental justice issues and support the building of localized community health resiliency.
  • To train students, researchers and post-doctoral fellows, and clinical and public health practitioners in community and environmental health research and practice.

WHA Mission Statement

Our mission is to conduct community-engaged research, educate and advocate on the intersecting issues of environmental health disparities, environmental and social justice, health and well-being, and gender and racial inequities to build community-based health resiliency. This includes utilizing community partnerships to support the development of research, evidence-based interventions and health education and environmental literacy aimed at empowering women to take responsibility for their health, understand the critical intersections of health and the environment, and to advocate on environmental justice issues directly impacting their communities.
