New types and larger quantities of data create new opportunities to better understand complex environmental health questions.  However, combining disparate data to inform specific decisions presents challenges—for example, how to reliably integrate data from designed experiments with data re-purposed from other uses including electronic health records, geo-spatial data sets, and crowd-based sources.  This workshop will explore the promise and potential pitfalls of environmental health data integration. Participants will help conceptualize future research directions that support incorporating these analyses into environmental health decision making.
