The Southeast Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit and Break the Cycle of Health Disparities, Inc. invites university students from all disciplines in the US and around the world to participate in our 2022-2023, 18th Annual Break the Cycle of Children’s Environmental Health Disparities training program.
Our Break the Cycle Program supports an interdisciplinary set of student-driven research projects that explore the social, economic, and environmental factors that adversely affect children’s health and well-being. Students are encouraged to develop creative strategies to reverse or mitigate those adverse factors and thereby improve the health and well-being of vulnerable children to Break the Cycle of Children’s Environmental Health Disparities and promote health equity for all children.
Since its inception in 2004, trainees from over 50 academic departments across 14 States in the US, as well as from 6 countries in in Latin America and 2 countries in Africa have completed over 150 BTC projects. Annual BTC trainee projects are published in an international journal.
We invite interested students to submit a research proposal by Friday September 16, 2022, for consideration. Proposals are reviewed by the Break the Cycle faculty and decisions will be communicated by Friday September 30, 2022.
