JPB Environmental Health Fellowship Program
An innovative approach to support junior faculty at U.S. Institutions engaged in research on social and physical determinants of environmental health relevant to underserved communities.
In 2014 Prof. Sara Wylie received this prestigious Environmental Health Fellowship through Harvard’s School of Public Health, supported by the JPB Foundation. This three-and-a-half-year fellowship supports Wylie’s development and implementation of low-cost tools for communities to map hydrogen sulfide, a hazardous air pollutant associated with oil and gas development. She is also developing and testing with performance artists ways to visualize pollution in real time, continuing work mapping pollution from Tar Sand refining in Southeast Chicago, and developing websites to share data developed by citizen scientists.
