The Social Exposome Cluster has three working groups that bring together faculty members, trainees and staff. Each working group include members who have the relevant knowledge and skills in a particular area of strategic importance to the cluster as well as members who are interested in training and learning more about a particular area. The role of the working groups is to provide ideas, advice, expertise, and support to help the cluster achieve its mission and deliverables.
Knowledge Translation and Dissemination
The Social Exposome Research Cluster is a leader in advancing knowledge across multiple groups in the community, by enabling a deep understanding and appreciation of the lasting influence of traditional & non-traditional social determinants of health. We achieve this by disseminating knowledge through diverse channels and strategies in order to create sustainable public impact and, subsequently, impactful policy changes.
The Social Exposome Research Cluster creates and sustains a high level of engagement with our new and existing cluster members and the general community. We achieve this through meaningful collaborations and partnerships along the spectrum, from researchers, to community groups, to policy makers, locally and globally. Underrepresented groups & geographical areas, alongside children and youth, are key to our engagement
Knowledge Translation Goals
- Work with community partners to disseminate knowledge on the lasting influence of traditional and non-traditional social determinants of health across various groups including families, practitioners, educators, policy makers and the general public
- Create sustainable impact based on knowledge on the lasting influence of early-life social and environmental factors and experiences
- Increase and maintain engagement with new and existing cluster members/general public
- Increase engagement of children/youth and underrepresented groups and geographical areas
