Second, to be successful, environmental health research requires the cooperation of disadvantaged communities. Too often in academia, community participation involves either communicating the results of a study after the study has been completed or allowing community members to participate in the study. The current situation, Goldstein said, calls for a third level of participation: working with the community and together deciding what research should be done and how to do it. This will involve going beyond studying the effects of exposure to one or another chemical.
