For many years, the University of Louisville has researched health and has learned a lot about how air pollution, smoking and vaping, and nutrition impact health in our community. This research has been shared at scientific conferences and published in scientific journals, but not enough of this new knowledge has made its way back to the community –
The Envirome is setting out to change that.
Louisville deserves more than a watered down version of science. Instead, we will dissect how the research was conducted and what the actual data is.
Like a book club: This monthly, open to the public, gathering will discuss an article written by researchers at UofL. Our goal is to bring scientific research to the people and policy makers who can help impact healthful change in our city. This is an unusual way to accomplish that mission and we hope everyone will give it a try!
A fun challenge: Each monthly reading will include scientific terms that may not be familiar to everyone. We’re creating a safe, judgement-free space where people from any part of our community can discuss and learn about new terms, methods, and concepts. Learning is part of the value of getting together!
When and where: Monday, April 15, 2019 at 6:30PM at Simmons College of Kentucky, 1000 South 4th Street, Louisville, KY 40203 in the lower level meeting room. There is a parking lot behind the building and free on street parking.

Read online or download and print the April 2019 paper: Residential Proximity to Major Roadways Is Associated with Increased Levels of AC133+ Circulating Angiogenic Cells
What to expect: Each month, a different person from the group will lead a discussion on a published paper of their choice. It will not be a lecture delivered by a researcher, but a volunteer-led conversation with plenty of time to discuss why the research was necessary, how it was conducted, and what it may mean for our city and our health. There will be refreshments and an opportunity to fill out a survey about the experience for a chance to win a gift card. Our first paper is about the
