Summer Program Stirs Students to Action on Environment

The number of Dearborn students becoming involved in more activism and learning development committees is increasing each year and the Environmental Health Research-to-Action (EHRA) Academy under Healthy Dearborn has empowered Dearborn high school and college preparatory students to take action in the health concerns facing Dearborn’s Southend.

Developed by two U of M-Dearborn faculty members, Natalie Sampson, Ph.D and Carmel Price, Ph.D, EHRA address environmental health disparities experienced by residents. The founding mechanism was introduced in early community meetings with a strong interest from community leaders and residents in addressing environmental health disparities through the methods of research and activism.
