Abstract
In environmental health research, a community-based participatory research
(CBPR) approach can effectively involve community members, researchers, and
representatives from nonprofit, academic, and governmental agencies as equal partners
throughout the research process. The authors sought to use CBPR principles in a pilot
study; its purpose was to investigate how green construction practices might affect indoor
exposures to chemicals and biological agents. Information from this pilot informed the
development of a methodology for a nationwide study of low-income urban multifamily
housing. The authors describe here 1) the incorporation of CBPR principles into a pilot
study comparing green vs. conventionally built urban housing, 2) the resulting
implementation and reporting challenges, and 3) lessons learned and implications for
increased community participation in environmental health research.
