Feb 15, 2023
Dr. Eric Tate has been named co-chair of a study committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The study is titled "Utilizing Advanced Environmental Health and Geospatial Data and Technologies to Inform Community Investment" and, over the next 18 months, the committee will examine data and methodology used in the leading online screening tools for climate and environmental justice; in particular, the Climate & Economic Justice Screening Tool of the White House Council on Environmental Quality. Such tools will soon be used to direct federal investments of billions of dollars, in alignment with the Justice 40 Initiative of the Biden administration.
Congratulations, Dr. Tate!
