HELIX is a research lab within Penn State’s Department of Geography. Our research, education, and outreach is designed to facilitate new and transformative interdisciplinary collaborations between faculty and students working at the health-environment interface. Collectively, our research contributes to scholarship on: interspecies health; health possibilities and constraints within complex socio-ecological systems; political ecologies of health; contested environmental illnesses; occupational health; health impacts of global climate change; and food security and critical nutrition studies.
