Environmental justice recognizes the disparities in exposure to environmental hazards borne by communities of color as a result of structural racism. These disparities have profound health impacts, from birth into adult life. Improving respiratory health for communities impacted by environmental injustice requires both high quality research, and mechanisms to move from research into action. This jointly sponsored, multi-disciplinary symposium aims to bridge this gap, highlighting both advances in research capturing the impact of environmental injustice, and the role of policy, community advocacy and clinical care in translating research into meaningful change.

• Contrast spatial epidemiology and community participatory-based research approaches to quantifying the health impacts of environmental injustice
• Develop a framework for clinical and community-based approaches to reducing environmental injustice and improve respiratory health outcomes for individual patients and communities
• Examine the impact of policy-based initiatives to reduce environmental injustice
