Join us for remarks from Admiral Rachel L. Levine, MD, and a presentation on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' new Environmental Justice Index (EJI) – an online tool that uses data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to rank the cumulative impacts of environmental injustice on health for every census tract in the United States.
