Community Outreach and Translation Core (COTC): Goals
1. To work bi-directionally with a Community Advisory Board (CAB) and the Illinois CEHC research teams. The CAB and the Illinois researchers work together in an iterative manner using feedback from stakeholders. Together, they develop dissemination materials and conduct policy scans, to identify policy opportunities for reducing children’s exposure to consumer chemicals that may harm their health and development.
2. To develop a dissemination plan of emerging knowledge about the effects of routine chemical exposure on the developing child thorough two conferences aimed at key stakeholders (early care and public health providers), a national E-extension parenting website, mobile platforms, and online seminars.
