The 2012-2017 National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Strategic Plan emphasizes partnerships with community stakeholders to capture critical missing information about the effects of environment on health and to improve translation of study results, a daunting task for many traditionally-trained researchers. Our team therefore undertook a PhotoVoice Project as a first step in establishing a participatory partnership and to appreciate the lived experiences of and build trust with youth visiting an urban community center in a high-risk, low-income, African American neighborhood located along a busy, polluted interstate.
