Healthy Gulf, Healthy Communities Project

Funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), the Healthy Gulf, Healthy Communities project works with communities impacted by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill to conduct research on resiliency and seafood safety. The aftermath of the DWH oil spill prompted a University of Florida (UF)-led team of researchers to study the physiological, psychological, and sociological effects in order to help communities recover and prepare for future potential disasters.
