Hello everyone! My name is Tina Chen, and I am an Environmental Health & Knowledge Translation Scientist at the National Collaborating Centre for Environmental Health (NCCEH). If you have never heard of the NCCEH, I encourage you to visit the About Us page to learn more about us. Feel free to browse the NCCEH website if you are interested in our products and services.
At the NCCEH, my role is to synthesize scientific evidence and best practices to create knowledge products to support environmental health policy and practice, and to help bring practitioners and policy-makers across the country together for networking and collaboration. My main portfolios at the NCCEH are ever-evolving as the field of environmental health is broad and complex. I am passionate about the field of healthy built environments, and strive to better understand how built environment features can influence and improve population health outcomes and advocate for evidence-informed health considerations in built environment policies and decisions.
I'm looking forward to meeting and working with each and every one of you as we learn from each other and create synergies and collaborations toward healthier built environments!
