Researchers at Texas A&M have developed a tool called HGBEnviroScreen that makes data reporting environmental and social risks more accessible to community members and community-based organizations (CBOs).

Published in the International Journal of Environmental and Public Health, this project is a collaboration with North Carolina State University and the Environmental Defense Fund. The project team, led by Dr. Weihsueh Chiu, a professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM), created the online tool to serve the Houston-Galveston-Brazoria (HGB) region in integrating and visualizing national and local data on environmental health to address regional concerns.
