Anthropologists have pioneered the appreciation of local knowledge, especially about the environment, and its successful scientific applications. In NYC, public health scientists have engaged with communities to research pollution hazards and impacts. This panel will explore how scientists and communities form relationships and their impact on the scientific process. Can this improve the quality of scientific findings and public policy? Will it change the practice of science?
